The new model separates crimes from each other. It looks at the spatial and temporal coordinates of individual events to find patterns for predicting the future.

American sociologists have created an algorithm that predicts crime

Sociologists from the University of Chicago have developed a new algorithm that can predict crimes a week in advance.

So, the algorithm studies the patterns during the commission of crimes and their location based on open data on violent and property crimes. The model is assumed to predict crime with a 90 percent probability.

As part of the study, scientists found that police made more arrests in wealthy areas than in poor ones.

The algorithm has already been tested in Chicago. The model divided the city into sectors and predicted the level of crime in each of them.

Earlier, the editors of our site reported that scientists had found out the devastating consequences of the “silent illness” of astronauts. In a new study published in Scientific Reports, scientists say astronauts lose bone mass in space for decades, and many do not recover even after a year on Earth. They warn that this could be a “big problem” for future missions to Mars.
