AI Developers have a well-intentioned but thorny plan to reduce recidivism

 — 13 août 2020
A team of computer scientists has a well-intentioned but thorny plan to reduce recidivism, the rate at which prisoners return to prison once released, and it involves constantly monitoring them as they go about their lives.

The idea? Giving parolees (who would volunteer for this program) smartphones and biometric wearables to monitor their biological data, pictures they take, and location information, all in the hopes of training artificial intelligence to identify patterns linked to regressions into criminal behavior.

Insights that help keep people out of prison could be useful, of course, but how this program would glean those insights is (to put it lightly) ethically fraught.
