But rather than being able to run down 10 streets to evade detection, they can drive, get a bus, catch the subway or sprint down 100,000 streets. A computer can crunch those numbers, but not fast enough or efficiently enough for it to be any good. With Fujitsu’s system, you can tell it how many officers you’ve got and it’ll tell you where to put roadblocks and concentrate your manpower. One of the reasons that the system is now a lot faster is thanks to a partnership with Japan’s University of Electro-Communications. Researchers there were able to get the number-crunching down to a speed that’s actually…
