Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (IIT-K) is using AI to empower the police. The first tech institution is incubating a think tank, which is developing an artificial intelligence-based data search engine to help law enforcement. The Lucknow-based Future Crime Research Foundation (FCRF) is incubated under the Artificial Intelligence and Innovation Driven Entrepreneurship (AIIDE) framework of IIT-K, Center of Excellence, Noida.
The search engine hopes to improve the investigation and policing process by using data from all relevant stakeholders to establish a data search engine. The search engine will help with predictive policing, mapping and crime analysis, the FCRF hopes.
Fraud and crime is one of the main social problems, said Shashank Shekhar, CEO of FCRF, which develops predictive policing methods using AI. “Now we can better understand crime and solve it faster. We are committed to promoting AI startups in UP, I am grateful to GoUP for supporting AI Hub Noida,” said Dr. Nikhil Agarwal, CEO, IIT Kanpur (FIRST, AIIDE and C3i Hub).
The FCRF search engine will be able to take advantage of data analysis and predictive analysis AI by creating data banks. The government has a wealth of data from case files, FIRs, indictments, seizure notes, conviction notes, arrest notes, crime data (cases/incidents), data on criminals and data from police station recording rooms and information on citizen complaints. Data from sectors like BFSI, transport and others are often not used.
FCRF hopes to build a platform where all available data – a set that the government already uses as well as banking, banking, financial and insurance (BFSI), ISP, telecom, transport – will be a click away from agencies. of investigation.
“We will collect all the necessary data from many sources and create a single platform capable of performing data analysis using regression models, data mining and artificial intelligence, as well as provide insight into the crime pattern unique to a given region,” said Shashank Shekhar, Co-Founder, FCRF.
