KOOL Question of the Day


*Voting is Completely Anonymous*

Armed with high-tech software and years of crime data, Miami police believe they will soon be able to stop crimes by predicting when and where they will occur. 

A system called HunchLab produces maps showing areas where specific crimes are likely to be committed during certain times. The probability program is a geographical version of “predictive policing” software, which more departments are using. 

Miami’s police are funding HunchLab with a $600,000 federal grant doled out by the Bureau of Justice Assistance to encourage smart policing tactics.

"Can a computer predict crime areas better than a policeman?"
