IIT-Kanpur sets up FCRF for Predictive Policing & Crime Mapping
Lucknow-based think tank Future Crime Research Foundation (FCRF) has been incubated by IIT Kanpur’s Artificial Intelligence and Innovation-Driven Entrepreneurship (AIIDE) – Centre of Excellence (CoE).
FCRF is building an artificial intelligence (AI) powered big data platform to facilitate the investigation and policing process. It will integrate the data from all the key stakeholders to create a first-of-its-kind search engine, which will help in predictive policing, crime mapping and analysis apart from the other services.
FCRF is a non-profit organization that aims to provide deep research and insight into new-age threats and strengthen Indian states, industries, institutes, academia and society by knowledge sharing, capacity building, imparting skill and public outreach in the digital space.
Shashank Shekhar, Co-Founder, FCRF, said, “Our area of focus remains in-depth study and research in the field of cybercrime, corporate fraud investigation, internal investigation, financial forensics, cyber law, Intellectual property domain, data protection, General Data Protection Regulation, Privacy, internet governance, smart manufacturing, forensic accounting and auditing, data breach, start-up policies, geopolitical analysis and public affairs.”
FCRF has created India’s first search engine for Nodal officers and all India police station numbers. This is to help law enforcement agencies and common man to contact key person when in need.
Harshvardhan Singh, Co-Founder, FCRF, said, “We will collect all necessary data from many sources and create a single platform that can execute data analysis utilizing regression models, data mining, and artificial intelligence, as well as providing insights into the crime pattern that is unique to a given region.”
