A new algorithm developed by the University of Surrey and Georgia Tech could give police departments the upper hand in their fight against crime, thanks to its ability to quickly process real-time data and predict where illegal activity could reoccur. In a paper published by Computational Statistics and Data Analysis, researchers including School of Mathematics Professor Martin Short detail a new approach similar to that used in weather forecasting and the Apollo space missions.
