Today's Super Bowl may seem like a high-tech affair, but the game itself is stuck in the Stone Age in terms of the way it is officiated. This Big Think perspective argues that professional sports should embrace instant replay and other technologies in order to create more accurate outcomes.
In the broader sense, the game of life can be made more fair if we are able to adopt technologies and more quickly integrate them into our society and our system of law. Just imagine, for instance, a traffic cop tossing away his radar gun and using the naked eye to catch people speeding.
On the other hand, prosecutors worry that society today has an unrealistic view of technology and argue that no forensic team in real life can be held to the same standards as their fictional counterparts on TV.
