Artificial Intelligence for Modern Policing



Marinus Analytics is a woman-owned company founded in 2014 out of Carnegie Mellon Robotics. We investigate how AI can turn big data online into actionable intelligence.

We know that it's not just about data: it's about people. Behind massive data streams are the individuals who create them. Whether it's a dealer posting drugs for sale online, a criminal behind thousands of financial transactions, or a victim behind millions of adult advertisements... we pinpoint the person in the data.

The AI solutions we deploy help law enforcement, government, and the private sector identify and combat criminal activity. Our solutions empower data-driven, people-centric responses in the modern age.

fighting human trafficking

Every day, there are hundreds of thousands of ads online selling sex. Behind many of these are victims of human trafficking. Our flagship tool, Traffic Jam, uses AI like facial recognition to decrease investigations by 50%, find victims more quickly, and take down organized criminal networks.


AI solutions for all agencies

The modern law enforcement agency needs to take advantage of all available AI tools to turn big data into actionable intelligence. But migration of data to the cloud is crucial to take advantage of AI tools, and that task can be daunting. We make it straightforward and seamless, so your organization can make the most of cutting-edge AI.


visualizing unstructured data

Government agencies are drowning in data. But in large amounts of data, we see potential. When visualized, this data can pull out patterns that reveal trends, empower action, and allow you to interact with your data as never before. 

Tackling the opioid crisis
