A taxi company in Japan has boosted passenger numbers by 20% by introducing an AI system that anticipates peak demand and dispatches cars accordingly. In the US, AI is used in courtrooms to calculate the risk of recidivism and help determine prison terms. This new technology is changing the world, but for better or worse?
