The 2019 Women in Data Science Conference (WiDS) hosted CSAFE Dr. Alicia Carriquiry as an invited speaker. Dr. Carriquiry’s talk, “Machine Learning and the Evaluation of Criminal Evidence” provided an overview of CSAFE research on bullet land topography, explaining different methods to determine whether a suspect is the source of evidence left at a crime scene.
