AI predicts arrests within three years of a being prisoner released on parole

Daily Mail - Science & tech

It may sound like the plot of the 2002 movie Minority Report, but artificial intelligence can predict any arrest within three years of a prisoner being released on parole. The machine learning was designed to determine the risk of releasing a prisoner early by analyzing 91 variables, including age, race and previous arrests. Scientists from The University of California, Davis (UC Davis) used the data of more than 19,000 inmates scheduled with the New York State Parole Board from 2012 to 2015. Court documents show 4,168 individuals were released, but that AI determined the board could have released double the inmates without increasing the subsequent arrest rate. The film, set in 2054, is about a specialized police department that apprehends criminals using foreknowledge provided by three psychics called'precogs.'

What is Data Science? History, Lifecycle, Prerequisites, Careers, Applications, Use cases - Big Data Analytics News


Data science courses are among the most popular globally, with a high likelihood of career prospects, according to the volume of internet searches for skill development or job-oriented courses. Data scientists are needed everywhere. The most fundamental prerequisite for developing any technology in this era of smart technology (which includes smartphones, televisions, watches, etc.) is data, and these data scientists serve as the foundation for machine learning and artificial intelligence specialists. A data scientist will also assist organizations in managing serious crises and assisting them in their resolution through the use of data-driven judgments. Data science is the study of analyzing and obtaining organized, unstructured, and noisy data from various sources. This analysis aids businesses in forecasting outcomes and making data-driven decisions. Data that adheres to a data model, has a clearly defined structure, follows a persistent order, and is simple for both humans and programmes to retrieve is said to be structured data. Unstructured data is not structured in a way that has been predefined, notwithstanding the possibility that it has a native, internal structure. The data is kept in its original format; there is no data model. Media, text, internet activity, monitoring photos, and more are typical instances of large datasets. Data Science – The MUST KNOW to become a successful Data Scientist! How can software engineers and data scientists work together? Corrupted data, a type of unstructured data, is another name for noisy data. It also includes any information that a user's system is unable to effectively analyze and interpret. If handled improperly, noisy data can have a negative impact on the outcomes of any data analysis and skew conclusions. Sometimes, statistical analysis is employed to remove noise from noisy data.

Combating financial crime risks with machine learning


The global banking industry faces heightened risks due to the evolving financial crime compliance mandates to clamp down on money laundering and sanctioned entities and maintain CDD/EDD. Among all, money laundering appears the most pernicious, with more illicit transactions evading anti-money laundering (AML) systems yearly. In tandem, screening sanctioned entities, SDNs, blocked persons, etc., is now a perennial need of financial institutions. Industry estimates place the laundered money to the tune of 2.7% of the annual global GDP, a whopping US$ 1.6 trillion loss. With an estimated 24,000 sanctions worldwide in 2022, inadequate watchlist screening and KYC (EDD/CDD) pose prodigious risks.
