Students in a Louisiana State University (LSU) computer science class developed Crimer, a crime-prediction software program.
The researchers collected crime data from the Internet and used it to build a national crime prediction map of the U.S.
The software uses a variety of machine learning algorithms for the extraction, transformation, loading, and predicting of crime reports.
The researchers supplemented the crime data with a variety of auxiliary data, including weather, terrain, and population, said LSU researcher Alexander "Lex" Adams.
