University event to highlight how data discovery aids police units

UNIVERSITY NEWS LAST UPDATED : 02 MAY 2013

Birmingham City University is hosting a free event next week exploring the role that information discovery and big data analysis plays in assisting police investigation units.

Speaking at the event on Thursday 9 May will be Chris Royles, a Principal Consultant for Oracle, a global organisation who provide business hardware and software systems.

Chris will discuss how the Chicago Police Department (CPD) uses data and information discovery to provide investigation insights, as well as showing how information discovery allowed the CPD to make better decisions about the deployment of police units and the contact of witnesses.

With a PhD in the field of machine learning in legal documents and human interaction, Chris has implemented and brought to market a solution for crime analysis which is used by some of the largest police forces globally.

The event runs from 2pm until 3.30pm at Birmingham City University’s Millennium Point campus. Get more information and book your place.
