Artificial Intelligence in Law Enforcement - Part 1

  Fighting crime has historically been a field that drives technological innovation, and it can serve as an example of different governance styles in societies. Artificial Intelligence in policing is one of the recent innovations that covers technical trends such as machine learning, preventive crime fighting strategies, and actual policing in cities.   Broadly speaking, Artificial Intelligence uses data to teach computers to make decisions without explicitly instructing them how to do it. Machine learning (part of AI) is used successfully in many industries to create efficiency, prioritise risk and improve decision making. Although they are at a very early stage, the police in the western countries are exploring the benefits of using machine learning methods to prevent and detect crime, and to develop new insights to tackle problems of significant public concern.     The police can use machine learning effectively to resolve many challenges that are before them. The use of
