Title: Predictive policing: myth or reality?

Abstract:

Predictive policing aims at forecasting where and when crime will take
place in the future. While millions are currently invested in unproven
predictive softwares we focus on self-excited point processes which have
recently become popular to predict crime. We consider a police patrol
allocation experiment and investigate under what parameter regimes the
model might prove useful. Then we consider a novel Bayesian sequential
data assimilation algorithm for joint state-parameter estimation by
deriving an approximation Poisson Gamma Kalman filter. Finally we apply
the data assimilation scheme and police patrol experiment to real
Chicago crime data.
