Using Artificial Intelligence to Address Criminal Justice Needs

Artificial intelligence (AI) applications can be found in many aspects of our lives, and even public safety and criminal justice are benefiting from AI. For example, traffic safety systems identify violations and enforce the rules of the road, and crime forecasts allow for more efficient allocation of policing resources. AI is also helping to identify the potential for an individual under criminal justice supervision to reoffend. Research supported by NIJ is helping to lead the way in applying artificial intelligence (AI) to address criminal justice needs, such as identifying individuals and their actions in videos relating to criminal activity or public safety, DNA analysis, gunshot detection, and crime forecasting.
