A New Spin on Predictive Coding: Predictive Policing

Police The New York Times reported that the Santa Cruz (Calif.) police began testing a new computerized prediction method for crimes called predictive policing.

Just like predictive coding in e-discovery, data is fed into a computer and by analyzing and detecting patterns in years of past crime data, it generates crime projections about where crime is likely to occur in the future.

Sound like the PreCrime unit in the movie The Minority Report is closer than we think!  Whats next in e-discovery after predictive coding - search "precogs"?
