Predictive Policing

Team Name: 
PredPol

In the 2012 film Minority Report, it shows a world where crimes are predicted before they occurred. This became the basis for our project for predictive policing with the intention of assisting police in fighting crime.

We utilised Coordinate level data for non-domestic assaults and robberies occurring in Sydney LGA in outdoor and public places to teach our predictive algorithm to learn from the historical data and to forecasts for the future.

Flash me!

Team Name: 
null;

We spend a lot of time waiting for things. From public transport, to waiting for family or firends, or even using the bathroom. 

Wouldn't it be great to have the opportunity to learn about things that you didnt even know that you wanted to learn about.

We wanted an app that could utlise these small bits of time, and gain something, just a little more. Learn about sciences? Animals, what have you.

 

Enter Flashme!

A flashcard inspired app that focues on short attention learning (be it a spare 5 minutes, 10 minutes).
