The solution is a system that will inspect visitors automatically and quickly, detecting any intent to commit a crime before it happens. According to Shoval he was somewhat inspired by the film “Minority Report” starring Tom Cruise, in which criminals-to-be are arrested by a “pre-crime” unit. Shoval gathered a group of founders and, with funding from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, developed their product. The system is called Cogito, Latin for “I think.” It’s a system that can detect hostile intentions, to be used in border checkpoints, airports, offices and other sensitive spots. It combines traditional security questions with lie detection principles.
The system can identify criminal intent, membership in shady organizations and even temporary criminal service on behalf of a third party. Subjects asked whether they’re members of criminal or terrorist organizations will show some uncontrollable physiological reactions if they do actually belong to some illegal group.
These should be mandatory for every Presidential and Congressional election, as well as Supreme Court candidates. They should also be used for Congressional hearings and police miscconduct investigations.
