Abstract

Artificial intelligence is playing an increasingly larger role in all sectors of society, and that includes policing. Many police departments are already using artificial intelligence to help predict and identify suspicious persons and places. Increased computational power and oceans of data have given rise to inferences about violence and threats. Artificial intelligence (AI) will change policing just as it will healthcare, insurance, commerce, and transportation. But what questions should we ask about AI and policing?

Keywords: policing, artificial intelligence, technology, surveillance, robotics, law
