Using software to model death row outcomes
Using software to model death row outcomes | csmonitor.com: "two professors...took 28 years of data on prisoners facing the death sentence and fed it into a software program.

What the software - known as an artificial neural network - managed to do was to predict with more than 90 percent accuracy who would be executed."

"What some observers find alarming about the outcome is that the 19 points of data supplied on each death-row inmate contained no details of the case. Only facts such as age, race, sex, and marital status were included, along with the date and type of offense."
