Technology Innovation Leading to New Public Health Perspectives

The NSW(New South Wales) Police Force attended 123,330 domestic violence events. With police reports being lengthy, it would be impossible to analyze every report individually. With the emergence of big data, we can extract certain information. “A total of 16% of domestic violence events examined had at least one mention of a mental illness for either the perpetrator or the victim, with the most common mental illness was depression and bipolar disorder.” By using AI to comb over big data, we can better analyze specific details regarding mental health with police interaction.
