- Using machine learning, law enforcement can determine if companies, even well-meaning ones, are doing business with other companies using forced labor.
- A common way to fight crime using machine learning is through facial recognition technology.
- Just as a machine learning algorithm can detect patterns in criminal acts, so too can an algorithm possibly predict a person’s behavior.
- A machine learning algorithm might see an uptick in stolen items considered necessities like toothpaste or soap.
