Artificial intelligence is helping American cops find criminals by spying on you while you drive.
- The AI searches through a database of 1.6 billion license plate records that have been collected so far to determine whether or not you’re a drug trafficker… or, at least, in theory.

- How long until officers everywhere have access to spy on citizens? With no judicial oversight, what’s stopping local police authorities from using this to their own devices, whatever they might be?
