#005 Evidence

While I was writing my last post I realised something. In the future, if there's ever a time when people are able to create ultra-realistic simulations, it's gonna be a lot harder for the police to find anything out. For example, if someone was to kill someone else, they could simply boot up there RealSIM 2070 and have a simulation ready that seems to prove they were sitting on their couch at home the whole time, so realistic that no one could even tell it isn't feed from a camera. 

Of course, if this happens, police will have to stop accepting "video evidence" as legitimate, since anyone can put together a simulation, identical to the real thing. There would maybe be things like Metadata that would allow you tell the difference, but someone would always find a way around it, and legitimate evidence would end up being ignored because someone could have faked it.

The next issue is, where would it stop? how long before it becomes easy to create objects that seem to be from a few days before, or create speech from another person by just having a few voice samples of them? Obviously things like this would be made illegal, but there wouldn't be anything to stop people actually doing them unless they got caught in the act.

In the end, you just have to hope that the police learn and are able to adapt faster than everyone else, with new ways of enforcing to stop people doing this before someone can create a crime whenever they feel like it.
Anyway, Thought Over,
