Predictive analytics - A look into the future

Do you know the movie "Minority Report"? Tom Cruise, who uses an artificial intelligence to solve crimes that haven't even happened yet? What was sci-fi in 2002 is reality today. The Goldbach Trendnews in August 2022 shows various examples of how AI can be used to predict future scenarios and, in the best case, save lives.

Algorithm predicts future crimes

A team of data and social scientists at the University of Chicago has developed a new algorithm for predicting crime. The algorithm divides a city into 1,000-square-foot tiles and uses temporal and geographic patterns from historical violent and property crime data to predict future events. The model was trained and tested using data from a total of eight major U.S. cities, while the result was that future crimes could be predicted a week in advance with about 90 percent accuracy.
