Scientists At Cincinnati Children's Using A.I. To Predict School Violence


Scientists at Cincinnati Children’s are developing an automated risk assessment system to detect and prevent school violence. The system uses artificial intelligence to analyze interviews, identify risk characteristics from student language, and predict violent outcomes. The scientists have been awarded a five-year grant totaling $2.8 million from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development to develop the technology.

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss the study are Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center Division of Biomedical Informatics Principal Investigator on the the project Yizhao Ni, MD, PhD; Child and Adolescent Forensic Research Program Director and Co-principal Investigator Drew Barzman, MD; and Clinical Research Coordinator Alexander Osborn, MS.

Cincinnati Children's is currently recruiting particpants for its study. You can find more information at 513-636-6681.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
