Understanding and Preventing Crime: A New Generation of Simulation Models
In the next event in the CCJS Public Seminar Series Dr Andrew Evans and Dr Nicolas Malleson will consider the latest developments in Agent-Based Modelling of crime.
Crime is driven by a complicated mix of environment, social context, and personal psychology. Traditional methods struggle to represent individual-level behaviour and relate this to specific elements of the environment. Agent-based models (ABM), which concentrate on individual-level behaviours, are making considerable advances on this front, particularly in burglary crimes where the geography of crime has a strong control. This presentation will introduce some of the developments in agent-based modelling, detail the application of agent models to the crime system, and discuss the future for such modelling, particularly the potential for including novel, crowd-sourced, datasets.
