KeyCrime was founded by Mario Venturi a former police officer with the Italian State Police (“Polizia di Stato”) after 31 years with the force. In his position as President of KeyCrime, Mario is working to support police organizations in the activity aimed at guaranteeing order and safety in the cities in which we live.

To achieve this end, KeyCrime has developed delia®️, crime analysis software that supports police officers to perform investigations. “delia®️” stands for acronym for Dynamic Evolving Learning Integrated Algorithm as the software learns from the context in which it operates.

delia®️ is designed as a companion to the typical analytical approach of investigators, bringing artificial intelligence and machine learning to the table in order to maximize results. The software focuses on aiding officers/users in the detection of criminal series and enables officers to predict future criminal behavior based on past events. By optimizing the process of conclusive reasoning and decision making, police departments can implement specific actions to prevent and repress crime, with significant benefits for citizens in their daily lives. Prosecutors benefit as well as delia®️’s documentation helps them prosecute criminals for multiple crimes and not just the one for which they were caught.

delia®️ is now the most advanced crime analysis software in the world.

delia®️ has been used with great success in a long-running experiment by the Italian State Police across the greater Milan area. The results achieved in Milan are the subject of a study by the Essex University Department of Economics.

The study highlights the positive repercussions of the application of delia®️’s approach in the socio-economic field and the results have been presented at multiple conferences including the National Bureau of Economic Research Summer Institute in Boston in 2016 (Crime is Terribly Revealing: Information Technology and Police Productivity). The study was recently published by the Oxford University Press’s publication, “The Review of Economic Studies (REStud)” after a peer-review process.
