Tesseract CEO reimagines how to combat and fight crime with Minority Report technology + advanced robotics

Welcome to an exploration of innovative crime prevention strategies presented by Tesseract Ventures. In this blog post, we discuss our advanced technology, inspired by the science fiction film “Minority Report,” designed to address rising crime rates and enhance public safety in Smart Cities. My company and I are seeking a forward-thinking Smart City within the United States, which may already possesses an IoT and sensor network infrastructure, to test and evaluate our pre-crime initiative that utilizes cutting-edge IoT sensors, robotics, cameras, and self-reported social media data analysis to predict and preempt criminal activity.

Precogs could be replaced by IoT sensors and other technology through a smart city
The movie Minority Report inspires a unique cyber physical interface to reimagine experiential data

Our approach deviates from “Minority Report’s” concept of psychic beings, or “Precogs,” by leveraging the existing IoT sensor network integrated with robotics, surveillance cameras, and other publically approved sensors throughout the city. These sensors collect and analyze data from various sources, including social media sentiment, to provide real-time predictions of potential criminal threats. The information is subsequently visualized in a state-of-the-art smart space, also known as the “Tesseract,” which offers law enforcement a comprehensive understanding of potential risks.

We invite your Smart City to capitalize on the opportunity to test and evaluate Tesseract Ventures’ pioneering initiative, enabling law enforcement to proactively mitigate criminal threats, ensuring the safety and well-being of residents while preserving civil liberties. By joining forces with us, your Smart City can gain valuable insight into the potential of technology-driven crime prevention in the 21st century. Let’s collaborate to transform the future of public safety and create safer, smarter communities for all.

Here’s my take for my own home city. READ BELOW


Over recent years, law enforcement agencies nationwide have grappled with mounting challenges in their mission to prevent and reduce crime. This escalation has placed a significant strain on police departments, emphasizing the pressing need for inventive solutions to bolster their crime prevention abilities.

A considerable number of departments have been compelled to adopt a reactive policing approach, centering their efforts on addressing crimes after they have transpired. This reactive methodology perpetuates the cycle of crime and taxes valuable law enforcement resources.

Successful crime prevention hinges on the availability of precise and current information about criminal activities and trends. Regrettably, some departments lack the essential tools and resources to gather, scrutinize, and disseminate this vital data. This informational deficit complicates the development of well-informed strategies for crime prevention and can lead to missed opportunities for proactive action against criminal activity.

An additional challenge faced by police departments is the disjointed approach often characterizing law enforcement endeavors. Absent effective collaboration and information sharing among various departments, crime prevention efforts risk duplication or gaps in coverage. Furthermore, certain departments may not possess the expertise or resources to deploy and utilize state-of-the-art technologies effectively, constraining their capacity to harness data and technology for proactive crime prevention.

In light of these challenges, it is crucial to investigate innovative solutions capable of enhancing police departments’ crime prevention capabilities, increasing their efficiency, and ultimately fostering safer communities.
