Exploring face recognition in criminal cases through interactive displays and hands-on activities
Witnesses to a crime are often asked to recall the face of the suspect. Using this information, an image is created which may help the police find the offender. Witnesses may also be asked to decide if a suspect is the perpetrator, providing useful prosecution evidence.
In this event we explore the recognition of suspects in criminal cases, through interactive displays and hands-on activities. We demonstrate cutting-edge face software that helps witnesses recreate the face of a suspect. We will also collect some ‘live’ data in a five minute experiment. We want to hear your views!
