Are modern technologies—such as artificial intelligence or “AI”—accurate enough to predict safety and security threats before harm comes to students, staff, and visitors on school campuses? According to a pilot study led by child forensic psychiatrist Dr. Drew Barzman, MD at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, AI may be useful in foretelling which students are at higher risk of perpetrating school violence. The research team evaluated 103 teenaged students from 74 traditional schools from across the United States. Participants in the study were recruited from psychiatric inpatient units, outpatient clinics, and emergency departments. Calculations focused on various factors that correlate with the potential risks of harm to self or others such as negative attitudes, previous violent behaviors, impulsivity, and other school problems. Findings show excellent accuracy rates of AI (91.02%-91.45%). Yizhao Ni, Ph.D., co-author of the study and computational scientist at Cincinnati Children’s states that “The machine learning algorithm…was almost as accurate in assessing risk levels as a full assessment by our research team, including gathering information from parents and the school, a review of records when available, and scoring on the two scales we developed.”
Do you think that AI technology could be part of the answer to the complex problem of school violence?
