WISC student Konstantin Klemmur presented a paper on "Modeling Rape Reporting Delays Using Spatial, Temporal and Social Features" at the Spatiotemporal Modelling workshop in this years' edition of the NeurIPS (formerly NIPS) conference. NeurIPS is one of the biggest machine learning conferences and attracts large audiences every year. Konstantin's paper explores the preliminary results of an ongoing study in collaboration with NYU CUSP. His paper, co-authored by Daniel Neill (NYU) and Stephen Jarvis (Warwick), explores whether spatial, temporal and social factors can help to explain substantial delays in the disclosure of rape crime.
