A group of police officers and social workers knock on your door. When you ask what’s going on, you’re told that an algorithm has predicted that you will be involved in a violent crime. The algorithm isn’t sure whether you’ll be shot or do the shooting. That’s why both police and social workers are there. The cops warn you that they’re gonna be watching you closely. The social workers offer to help you find a job. It may sound like you’re on a set filming a dystopian sci-fi movie. But if you’re Robert McDaniel, you’re sitting in your own living room experiencing the first scene in what will become a dystopian story, but one that’s all too real.
