Hitachi Crime Prediction Analytics Examined

By Brian Karas, Published Jun 03, 2016, 09:13am EDT (Info+)

Hitachi, relatively unknown in the security industry, says their forthcoming analytic software can "predict crimes before they happen".

We spoke with Hitachi to better understand these claims, and analyze how the software is intended to work.

This report provides an overview of Hitachi's upcoming release, and limitations of the software.

...or that gathering and inputing enough datapoints to make the software more accurate becomes too costly and time consuming.

Perhaps they plan to integrate with their A/C analytics module?

The City of Santa Cruz (CA) has been running a competitor program/suite like described for a couple of years. We still have problems here in all the "hot spots". Save your money, and put more police on the beat.

We work with some cities that use the competitor program and many other departments are looking at the solution. The idea is to saturate the hot spots with a physical police presence.

Its doing more with less as its becoming more difficult to hire officers.
