The use of technology to help the FBI in critical- and creative-thinking is an essential aspect of the organization. Technology has had a particularly strong impact on how individuals think, and can be used by the FBI to create more effective processes, improve information gathering, increase awareness, and develop better solutions. This paper will discuss recommendations as to how technology can be used by the FBI in order to promote critical- and creative-thinking skills within its workforce.
One way that technology can encourage critical thinking is through data analysis techniques. Data analytics techniques can be used to analyze large datasets for patterns or correlations that may not have been previously noticed (Sullins, 2017). By analyzing larger datasets with more sophisticated tools such as machine learning algorithms or natural language processing models, Correlation between variables could be identified which may lead to discoveries about criminal behavior or actions which could then be acted upon by law enforcement personnel (Mintz & Pangilinan 2019). By combining data analysis with other approaches such as interviews with witnesses or suspects, agents would gain greater insight into potential crimes and threats faster than ever before.

Another way in which technology could aid in critical thinking is through improved communication systems. The current communication systems used by most law enforcement agencies are inefficient when it comes to sharing information quickly between multiple agencies or departments (Shah & Miller 2016). Improved communication systems would allow officers from different departments or jurisdictions to coordinate their efforts quickly and effectively without having to wait for lengthy periods of time for information transfer due delays caused by outdated technologies. By having shared access points where all relevant parties have access at any given moment allows for better decision making based on the gathered information giving agents the ability make decisions much quicker rather than waiting hours or days depending on where they are located geographically (McGinnis 2018).
Technology also plays a role in creative thinking as well; using predictive analysis software such as neural networks Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms can anticipate potential scenarios based on past experiences taking into account previously seen events along with environmental factors enabling agents come up with possible solutions far more quickly than traditional methods alone(Yang et al., 2017). Moreover AI chatbots allow customers seeking legal advice from their own voice assistants providing them further assistance if needed allowing them immediate support without having require human interaction saving both time and resources while granting customers quick responses based on predetermined parameters set forth beforehand.(Kaushik et al., 2019)
In conclusion, The use of technology should always been viewed as an integral part of any Agency’s workflow not only because it expedites tasks but also because it encourages exploration of issues leading towards deeper understanding which results in breakthrough insights often missed under traditional methods(Weihe et al., 2017). Therefore it is highly recommended that organizations like the FBI take advantage of these technologies when attempting tackle persistent problems such as crime fighting while enhancing existing processes whenever possible so they remain ahead of any emerging challenges thus safeguarding our society’s future prosperity.
