To me it seemed more like Philip K. Dick, in
Minority Report, with the precogs replaced by video
cameras and computers.

Take the Orwellian surveillance society as a starting point,
and add the dehumanizing power of a pre-crime unit that
can render an individual's free will as moot.

PKD probably figured we would make replicants as soon as we could, but
I'm not sure he saw us making precogs so soon.
