How artificial intelligence could help warn us of another Dallas - The Washington Post

See Internet AWACS for more details
"Using IBM's Watson AI, the tool not only examines large collections of tweets but — somewhat eerily — also can go through a single user's timeline and, with Watson's machine learning technology, offer an analysis of that user's "trustworthiness, propensity toward violence [and] openness," the Jester said. That information, he said, could hold clues to a criminal's intentions.

The hacker likens his tool to the future-seeing "precogs" from "Minority Report."
If the Jester's name sounds familiar, that's because the hacker has appeared elsewhere — on Time's list of most influential Internet personalities, on CNN and, according to a recent blog post, on an upcoming episode of USA's "Mr. Robot." He has used his hacking skills to bring down dozens of websites that he says helped spread Islamic extremism. What he does technically may not be legal, CNN reports, but law enforcement officials have largely turned a blind eye to his independent activities."
