It didn’t take long to uncover the story in this case. It seems as though the gains are being caused by a positive PR released early this morning.

The goal is to use this technology in the company’s RedZone Map app to better analyze recent crime patterns and predict criminal activity. In a state, Ted Farnsworth, CEO at HMNY had the following to offer…
“Dr. Rajan’s groundbreaking AI technology will allow us to deliver a wider range of criminal data than before, including a crime forecasting feature… We expect this new AI technology to help move RedZone Map into the forefront of the crime data sector, benefiting our app users and law enforcement alik.”
