Point Process Methods for Crime Hotspots
Date:Fri, Nov 2, 2012
Location:IRMACS Center, Simon Fraser University
Conference:Hot Topics in Computational Criminology
This talk focuses on the application of point process methods to crime and security data. We will discuss semi- and non- parametric models, as well as their estimation using Expectation-Maximization algorithms. We conclude the talk with some results from a randomized controlled trial in Los Angeles where police patrols are determined each day using a semi-parametric self-exciting point process.
