Forensic Data Analysis

Career Relevance – (Research Methodologies) 

 

Technology: 

There are ethical and reliability concerns about artificial intelligence (AI) making law enforcement, homeland security, private security, and corrections operational decisions. This is explained in a January 2021 research publication by the Rand Corporation, created by Douglas Yeung, Inez Khan, Nidhi Kalra, and Osonde A. Osoba. 

 

AI is increasingly relied upon by American local law enforcement, as documented in a Wall Street Journal presentation on July 3, 2019. This documentation focuses on the New Orleans, LA, police department, which uses many cameras set up on street corners and places where humans are found. Because of this, AI analyzes the tremendous amount of information and makes decisions (not humans) regarding what needs to be addressed by police. 

 

In this New Orleans presentation, private citizens call this AI surveillance as “surveillance on steroids!” Private citizens also ask in this presentation who makes sure that AI performs as intended. Also, can the police be trusted to police themselves regarding what is quickly becoming “technology automated” (machines making the decisions) and not human law enforcement authorities? 

 

You are part of a task force to research the use of forensic data and technology that relies upon artificial intelligence (AI). Your manager has asked for an analysis report on potential current uses of AI in criminal investigations. 

 

Read the article from the University Library.

 

Write a 1,400- to 1,750-word analysis report responding to the following:

  • Analyze the use of forensic technology within the context of artificial intelligence.
  • Provide a stance on the two arguments presented in the article about “AI is as likely to contribute to racism in the law as it is a means to end it.”
  • Explain why you would or would not agree about “Public Fears and the Reality of Concerns Related to AI.”
  • Provide an example of the use of AI in a criminal investigation case and evaluate its use to solve it.
  • Explain the methods you would use to solve the case.
  • Assess the ethical implications of using technology such as AI in criminal investigations.
  • Assess the reliability of using AI technology to solve the case.

Forensic Data Analysis

instead of less domestic violence twenty years later after the Tjaden and Thoennes (2000) study, an April 17, 2020, landmark article titled When Staying Home is Dangerous: Domestic Violence During Quarantine, by University of Virginia Nursing Professor Christine Phelan Kueter, in USAToday, stated, “Covid-19 has another terrifying side effect, a rise in domestic violence…violence and its cascade of ill – including physical abuse, mental illness, post-traumatic stress disorder, murder – are as deadly as the virus keeping us in quarantine.”  

 

Therefore, it is even more relevant today, regarding the conclusion stated in an October 23, 2007, National Institute of Justice, United States Department of Justice article, titled Overview of Intimate Partner Violence, states: “Violence by an intimate partner is linked to both immediate and long-term health, social, and economic consequences. Factors at all levels — individual, relationship, community, and societal — contribute to intimate partner violence.   

 

This type of violence can occur among heterosexual or same-sex couples. Preventing intimate partner violence requires reaching a clear understanding of those factors (scientific methodologies), coordinating resources (communications using technology, peer-reviewed publications, etc.) and fostering and initiating change in individuals, families, and society.”

Discussion Questions:  

  • How has technology helped develop a clear understanding about domestic violence, including violence against children?
  • What methods are used to develop psychological (e.g., mindset) profiles about domestic abusers as well as their victims?
  • Do these methods (profiling and use of technology) adequately address the multifaceted issues of domestic violence? Why or why not?

 

Due Monday

Post 2 replies to classmates or your faculty member. Be constructive and professional.

 

 Please Note: Please cite one literature reference from outside the classroom with at least one of your discussion postings for this week.
