Those unable to join the seminars in-person are welcome to participate via zoom.

About this event

An ambitious Chicago program to reduce homicides. A discussion of how we use machine learning and police/hospital data to identify active shooters, gang outreach to recruit them, and effects of a 2-year jobs and cognitive therapy program.

Applications (Applied Micro) Seminars are held on Mondays in term time at 16:00-17:30 ONLINE, or in meeting room 3.05 if the speaker attends in person.
