Artificial intelligence: the new superhero on the block
It’s not just cybercrime – AI is now helping to track and predict real-world crimes in ways far more efficient and far reaching than humans alone could achieve. Today’s law enforcement services are able to make better decisions and make better use of their resources, thanks to AI’s ability to monitor, survey and assess human behaviour.
Superpower 1: Foresight
No longer the preserve of psychics, AI is helping to predict the future. New software from Hitachi dissects massive amounts of data – public transit maps, social media conversations, weather reports and more – and uses machine learning to find patterns that humans can’t pick out. Combined with historical crime and incident data, heat maps are then generated, identifying the threat level for specific regions. This is equipping local authorities with unprecedented information, enabling them to allocate precious police and security resource more accurately.
