Technology has changed policing significantly in the past few decades. A surveillance system in huge cities spots crimes and ensures perpetrators are brought to justice. Face recognition is used to identify criminals and artificial intelligence to recognize violence and accidents. At the same time, it enables investigators to analyze crime trends as well, which helps police to forecast when and where violent crimes will occur and ensure that they have the resources in place to prevent them. Metadata analysis and technology make our current age truly revolutionary regarding law enforcement. What is this technology capable of and what will the future bring to the world of policing? We will investigate these questions with data scientist and public speaker Vincent Harinam, an expert from the University of Cambridge.
