Magna Class FGV EMAp 2021 - “Data Intelligence for Public Security” by Luis Gustavo Nonato (Professor at USP)


Brazilian society is facing a public security crisis whose causes transcend purely criminal issues. Urban factors such as population density, presence of commercial and industrial establishments, location of bars and restaurants, people flow, presence of parks, climatic factors, in addition to socioeconomic conditions, strongly influence the pattern and dynamics of crime in each location in a city. Thus, an integrated analysis of crime data, urban infrastructure, climate, and socio-environmental factors is essential to identify crime patterns reliably. In this lecture we will present data science and machine learning tools that allow the joint analysis of crime data and external variables, assisting agencies responsible for public security in the elaboration of policies aimed at crime prevention in urban areas.
