Forensic Face Comparison Training - An Essential Overview
When an automated face recognition solution is used for investigation or vetting purposes, it presents the reviewers or examiners with potential matches. It is up to the human reviewers to decide whether two facial images belong to the same individual.
This 3 hour webinar is FREE for all attendees thanks to the sponsorship of MorphoTrak. This webinar will give attendees an introduction to Facial Identification and Comparison. A brief overview of the history, principles, and anatomy will be covered, culminating in a review of the dominant methods of comparison used in Facial Recognition and Identification.
