We’re familiar with data about the number and types of crimes reported, where they happen, and when. But how else can data be used to make society safer and the criminal justice system more just and fair? From using AI to take down extremist content online, the police disrupting hotspots using predictive analytics, to researchers giving police new insight into the perpetrators and victims of crime. This conference brings together an exciting line-up of speakers from government and academia to address some of the most exciting and challenging issues around the use of data and AI in law and order.
