Crime Prediction algorithm improves police deployment to reduce property crime by 25%

via nextbigfuture:

A recent study suggests that computers could be better than seasoned police analysts at predicting when and where crime will strike next in a busy city.

Software tested in Los Angeles was twice as good as human analysts at predicting where burglaries and car break-ins might happen, according to a company deploying the technology.

When police in an L.A. precinct called Foothill division followed the computer’s advice—and focused their patrols within the areas identified—those areas experienced a 25 percent drop in reported burglaries, an anomaly compared to neighboring areas.

É importante usar a inteligência dos softwares para otimizar a eficiência da polícia sem ter que aumentar o efetivo e a frota de viaturas.

Centuries ago, we wore uniforms and worked in factories. We clocked in, clocked out, and did what we were told. Our work fed our families, but not our souls.

Not today. You don’t work in a factory, and heck, sometimes you don’t even go to the office. You decide what to work on, when to work, and how. You spend more of your life at work than ever before, form closer bonds with those you work with, and it’s no longer rare for work to be a place you want to be.

Yet we still talk about work as a necessary evil. It’s time we stopped. We work because we love it.

Paul Higgins: I think this is true for a much larger percentage of people than it used to be but it would be seen as a bit of an insult by those vast numbers of people who are still not able to say this. I certainly agree with the statement for my work. I often say to people that my view of retirement is not having to work which is different than stopping work. My dream is to emulate in a small way the feats of Peter Drucker - he was still writing and doing presentations at 96. I cannot imagine not being involved in the mad rush of ideas and change that is occurring and will continue to occur. I get to think about interesting things and interact with smart, committed interesting people all over the country and all over the world. Why would I stop doing that?

Material — Do great work. (p.s. We’re hiring!)
