EU IAI will kick off 2016 with this great webinar by one of our own Board member. It is our thank you gift to all our members for their continued support.
This webinar will provide an overview of forensic data science on multimedia big data. Since the amount of video and image material grows rapidly and a forensic analysis takes much time, within the webinar we will focus on analysis of big data and systems to handle this in a forensic context. It will provide insights in state of the art methods for facial comparison, emerging biometrics of hand and feet shape, as well as the limitations are discussed of using these. Furthermore issues of integrity and authenticity of the evidence will be discussed.
