Indian state adopts AI-based predictive policing


The newly appointed DGP in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh has said he intends to focus on people-centric and artificial intelligence-based predictive policing to identify high-risk areas so that police can anticipate and prevent crimes. He has also named cybercrime as a priority. Uttar Pradesh, which holds about 17% of India's population, is ranked 20th in terms of crime rates, and has a conviction rate of 70.8, nearly three times the national average of 25.3.
