What happened? In a study that shows the potential for artificial intelligence to help prevent crime, a team of researchers from the University of Chicago has demonstrated a model that can predict crimes a week in advance with 90% accuracy. The study was conducted in eight major US cities and provides a glimpse into how AI could be used to help law enforcement officials plan and prepare for criminal activity.
Why is this important? While the study is still in its early stages, it provides a promising example of how AI can be used to help keep communities safe. As Professor Ishanu Chattopadhyay from the University of Chicago said, "We created a digital twin of urban environments. If you feed it data from what happened in the past, it will tell you what's going to happen in the future. It's not magical, there are limitations, but we validated it and it works really well."
This development starts to look like the 2002 science fiction thriller Minority Report, which was inspired by the 1956 novella Minority Report by Philip K. Dick. It's both fascinating and frightening. So what will be the implications on people and our planet? Well, we need to be careful that we don't become a society that relies on machines to make decisions for us. As the study shows, AI can be a valuable tool, but it's important that we remain in control and keep human beings in the loop. After all, we're the ones who have to live with the consequences of our actions.

Christian is a futurist and trendwatcher who speaks about the impact of exponential technologies like AI on organizations, people, and talents. Christian tailors his presentations to your audience's specific industries and needs.
Embracing the advancements of technology and AI can enhance our humanity. We can focus on developing our unique talents and skills by automating mundane tasks and freeing up our time. As humans, we can adapt and learn, allowing us to evolve and stay relevant in a rapidly changing world constantly.
Organizations will need to be more fluid, dynamic, and adaptable: the ability to change and adjust in response to new situations and environments. We are on the cusp of a new era of organizations, ones that are more fluid and agile and which behave like swarms we see in nature.
In the future, 3D printing and generative design will allow for products to be designed in a more decentralized manner, and production will take place closer to the customer and fully on-demand. 3D printing technology will also allow for more customization and personalization of products.
The agricultural industry is ripe for disruption. Robotics, AI, and IoT are all technologies that have the potential to radically transform the way we grow food. In combination with vertical farming, these technologies could increase the efficiency and quality of agricultural products.
A human-centered society is one that puts people first and where technology is used to unite and empower people. It is a society that values biological life and dignity above all else. It is a society that recognizes the importance of human relationships and works to strengthen them. In a human-centered society, all members of the community are valued and treated with respect.
The future of healthcare is here. New technologies like AI, IoT, big data, and smart sensors make it possible to become the CEO of your own health. Imagine that your phone can listen to your voice and AI algorithms can detect small nuances in the tone of your voice that indicate specific diseases.
