AI Is Helping Catch Serial Killers

For context, there are thousands of murderers that get away without getting caught every year. MAP (Murder Accountability Project) is trying to bring justice to some of the victims, and stop serial killers before they strike again.

Catching a serial killer is a much different process from other types of homicide perpetrators, and many times law enforcement doesn’t put the dots together that several different homicides are actually the victims of a serial killer. Connecting these dots is important in order to focus law enforcement efforts and catch these monsters, and that is exactly what MAP has trained an AI to do.
