Social scientists from the University of Chicago have formulated an algorithm that claims 90% accuracy in forecasting crime - detecting patterns of time to predict future events.
This isn't the first algorithm to look at this problem, but previous models identified emerging 'hotspots' which was subject to bias. The new model claims to be able to ask questions like 'what happens to the crime rate if property crimes increase?'... which could be a better measure.
The Relyon app. operates through a user-defined set of code
words, ensuring swift and effective responses. When a crisis arises, users
utter predefined code words, triggering automated and immediate actions on
their mobile devices. These actions include contacting designated contacts,
real-time location sharing, activating audible alarms, recording the situation,
and more. There is also an all-encompassing
solution that incorporates the full spectrum of features and capabilities in
the AI voice-activated app. Ideal for organizations seeking a ready-to-use,
out-of-the-box safety solution, the Relyon platform provides seamless access to
automatic emergency responses, location tracking, real-time communication, and
other benefits. More information: https://israeltrade.org.au/2023/08/24/re
Imagine that shoppers can walk into stores, select their items off the shelves, and leave without having to queue at checkout or scan any goods. Payments and receipts are settled digitally. Israeli company Trigo transforms existing supermarkets into fully autonomous digital stores where feeds from ceiling-mounted cameras and shelf sensors are analyzed to generate a “digital twin” of the store. Computer vision algorithms, similar to the ones on driverless cars, log interactions between humans and merchandise. The result is a fundamental transformation in the way physical stores are being managed and experienced by both shoppers and operators.
