Artificial intelligence can now predict crimes a week ahead

Specialists from the University of Chicago have developed a new algorithm that predicts what crime can be committed in a week. Its accuracy is about 90%, but only in a small area. At the moment, this is the most advanced development of the existing ones. The description of the algorithm is given in the journal Nature Human Behavior.

Artificial intelligence can now predict crimes a week ahead

The system is based on a trained neural network that studies patterns in the commission of crimes, their location and time. This is done on the basis of open data on violent and property crimes.

Researchers have already tested in Chicago, Atlanta, Austin, Los Angeles and other major US cities. The system works like this: the city is divided into squares with a side of about 300 meters, after which the time and place of individual crimes are analyzed, patterns are identified and future events are predicted.

We have created a digital twin of the urban environment. If you give him data about what happened in the past, he will tell you what will happen in the future. It’s not magic, there are limitations, but we tested the model and it works very well. Now you can use it as a simulation tool to see what happens if crime rises in one area of ​​the city or law enforcement increases in another area. If you use all of these variables, you can see how systems evolve in response.” said Ishanu Chattopadhyay, assistant professor of medicine at the University of Chicago and senior author of the new study.

At the same time, accountants note that the model should not be used to ensure law and order. Increasing the number of police in the future crime area may change the conditions of the simulation, which means that the previous model will be incorrect. Instead, they advise adding the model to the list of police strategic tools.

Previously, scientists have learned to “see through walls” using a “bundle” of man and artificial intelligence.

Apple has reported a possible vulnerability in the operating systems

A vulnerability has been discovered in the operating systems of iPhones and iPads that could give hackers full administrative access to devices. It is in the core of the system and in the engine for displaying WebKit web pages. As noted, the problem has been fixed in the latest firmware versions.

Apple has reported a possible vulnerability in the operating systems of the iPhone and iPad

The media talked about this, and also said that some “anonymous researchers” helped discover the company’s vulnerability, but Apple did not disclose details.

As follows from the report, attackers could run applications with administrator privileges and act on behalf of the owner of the device. The issue affected iPhone 6s and later, iPad Pro (all models), iPad Air 2 and later, iPad 5th generation and later, iPad mini 4 and later, and iPod touch (7th generation). This affected the iOS 15.6.1 and iPadOS 15.6.1 operating systems.

The company’s technical support has already stated that the problem has been fixed, and independent experts have stated that they recommend updating the OS to the latest current version.

The full iOS 16 update will be released in September, and watchOS 9 for smartwatches is also expected. But the new version of iPadOS will appear later, like macOS Ventura.

WhatsApp users will be banned from taking screenshots of files

WhatsApp developers are working on a new feature that will prevent users from taking screenshots and capturing video from the screen when opening files for a one-time view. The innovation has already been implemented in the beta version of the messenger for Android.

WhatsApp users will be banned from taking screenshots of files for one-time viewing

So, in the future mobile version of WhatsApp, users will be notified before sending a file with a single view that the recipient will be able to open the photo or video only once and will not be able to resend it to anyone, save it, copy it or take a screenshot. There are no such notifications or warnings in the current version of WhatsApp. True, at the same time, nothing prevents the recipient from recording a video or photographing content on another smartphone.

Recall that recently the release of a full-fledged WhatsApp client for desktop PCs and laptops running Windows took place.

Naturally, this does not mean at all that all these models will immediately stop receiving software updates – fresh firmware for them will continue to be released for a long time, as beta versions are transferred to the release (final) status. However, we can already say that these models will not receive anything fresher than MIUI 13 (MIUI 14 will not be released until November).

Xiaomi also announced the recruitment of participants in the Android 13 beta testing group for the Redmi K50 Gaming Edition gaming smartphone – the test will be launched before the end of this month.
