CSAFE January 2018 Center Wide Webinar
Wednesday, January 31, 2018 at 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm UTC+0
CSAFE invites researchers, collaborators, and members of the broader forensics and statistics communities to participate in the January Center Wide Webinar on Wednesday, January 31 at 3:00 p.m. CST. We will have a short introduction from CSAFE Director Alicia Carriquiry followed by the presentation “Comparing Cartridge Breechface Marks: 2D versus 3D” by Xiao Hui Tai from Carnegie Mellon University.
Please register for the event by clicking the button above. Participating instructions will be sent to registered participants via email one week before the event.
We will describe work that we have done on an automated method to compare breechface marks on 2D images of cartridge cases, and how this transfers to 3D topographies. We will discuss various studies and compare the results for 2D and 3D data. In the future, such algorithms may be used by examiners for blind verification or for quantifying the weight of evidence.
