Leveraging Artificial Intelligence for Crime Prevention
Why do burglars commit crimes and what kinds of decisions do they make when in a home? The answer could help us reduce the number of burglaries taking place.
More than 192,000 burglaries were reported between 2021 and 2022 across England and Wales. The impact upon victims goes beyond lost possessions and can have a longer-term impact on their sense of security in their own homes.
But Matthew Talbot thinks that some alterations in our behaviour, as well as embracing the tools of the digital age could be set to change that.
In this episode of Life Solved we find out how he’s bringing together forensics and psychology in the Virtual Burglary Project at the University of Portsmouth.
