INDIANAPOLIS - While predictive policing aims to improve the effectiveness of police patrols, there is concern that these algorithms may lead police to target minority communities and result in discriminatory arrests.  An IUPUI School of Science computer scientist conducted the first study to look at real-time field data from Los Angeles, CA and found predictive policing did not result in biased arrests. p_a_f_csi_george-mohler.png

Male professors at prestigious U.S. institutions are more than twice as likely to speak at colloquia than their female counterparts. A new study found that this disparity can't be explained by academic rank or differential interest in giving talks.

The study, published last month in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, found there were 3,652 colloquium speakers in 2013-14 in six disciplines at the top 50 U.S. universities and colleges, as defined by U.S. News & World Report.

When George Mohler was an undergraduate mathematics student at Indiana University, he had no idea that his work would eventually have the potential to shape crime prevention and incident response for major metropolitan police departments.

Mohler's Ph.D. studies in the University of California system steered him into predictive modeling and data analytics. His first assignment was in Los Angeles -- no small task.
