SERIAL KILLERS and artificial intelligence highlight P.I.D. Radio’s return after a 13-month hiatus.
A researcher has developed an algorithm to study the habits and status of serial killers. After analyzing the data, he estimates that as many as 2,000 of them may be roaming the streets in the United States.
The only thing more disturbing is the news that a professor at the University of Southern California is programming an artificial intelligence with the thought patterns of the notorious Zodiac Killer, who may have killed 28 people in northern California in the late ’60s and early ’70s. The professor hopes to crack the unsolved cold case by training the computer to think like the killer, who was never caught, but the AI is starting to write Zodiac-style poetry.
