‘Pre-crime’ Comes to the HR Department


From Datamation:

In the Steven Spielberg movie Minority Report, police belonging to a
special Pre-crime unit arrest people for crimes they would do in the
future. It’s science fiction, and it will probably never happen in our
lifetimes.

However, the pre-crime concept is coming very soon to the world of
Human Resources (HR) and employee management.

A Santa Barbara, Calif., startup called Social Intelligence data-mines
the social networks to help companies decide if they really want to
hire you.

While background checks, which mainly look for a criminal record, and
even credit checks have become more common, Social Intelligence is the
first company that I’m aware of that systematically trolls social
networks for evidence of bad character.
