If the movie iRobot, starring Will Smith, made you uneasy you should stop reading now!
Scientists have trained a computer to SOLVE CRIMES. They did it by having it binge watch 39 episodes of CSI which helped the artificial intelligence learn how to recognize clues and suspicious behavior. There's no word on when it might be ready for cases in the real world.
So far, the computer can correctly guess the killer 60% of the time, which is slightly below real detectives, they get it 85% of the time.
It's cool to relax coppers. Looks like the computer isn't ready to put you out of a job just yet but the scientists say with more training, the computer could become almost flawless at its crime solving and then it would be time to see if it could apply those skills in the real world.
