Using Modeling to Predict Future Crimes
School: SOCORRO HIGH
Area of Science: Computer Science
Proposal: With crime growing rapidly in today's world, many hours of man power and effort are being spent with little or no results in predicting and preventing where a criminal might strike next.
The goal of this project is to create a program that enables the computer to model an area and logically deduce the location of the next crime in a crime spree will happen.
This problem would be simulated in a grid representing an area (i.e. city). The user would enter the possible sites where the next crime would happen. Each variable in the simulation (previous crime site, police stations, donut shops, etc.) would be assigned a gravity strength, based on researched values. The site that the criminal will most likely go after will be flagged, allowing the cops to set up a watch there and catch the criminal.
With our project, we hope to bring peace unto the world.
