How a software can help Indian Army to predict Pak incursions
A multinational security firm has secretly developed software capable of tracking people's movements and predicting future behaviour by mining data from social networking websites.
Yes, thanks to data analytics organisation which is capable of cracking down on everything from minor riots to armed militants crossing the border.
According to Tushar Chhabra who is the co-founder of Gurgaon-based driverless truck company Cron systems, said that he has around 20 terabytes of data on the border movement which earlier used to be recorded in physical log books of soldiers. These include thermal images, instances of people going near the fence from across the border and also activity at late night.
Meanwhile, Tarun Wig who is the founder of Delhi-based Innefu Labs said that his company provides analytics services to BSF, CRPF and Police departments across India.
What's more interesting here is, the company also provides data that can actually predict the script of Bollywood screen writers.
What is Data analytics:
Data analytics (DA) is the process of examining data sets in order to draw conclusions about the information they contain, increasingly with the aid of specialized systems and software.
In Bengaluru, the City Police Commissioner Praveen Sood, an IIT Delhi alumnus during his tenure said that even their team is used data analytics software to process distress calls from all areas of the city. Data analytics also helped Sood shut nine police stations and relocate them instead to the outskirts which were more crime prone.
The data analytics is also effective in law enforcement areas. According to the analytics around 90% of the distress calls never get registered a FIR. The calls include drunken fights, mischief near residential areas.
But based on the data analytics, the cops allocate patrolling vans to those areas where frequent calls are coming from and not waste our manpower.
