From software that predicts crimes to drones. Technology promises more safety. But does it threaten our privacy?
The policeman stops the suspect, points the gun, asks to raise their hands. The boy refuses. And, when he reaches into his bag, the officer chills him, mistakenly thinking he is about to take a weapon. Fortunately, the only real element is … the policeman.
