In the subject Forensic Science, Biometrics has been used since ancient times. The first textbook on the subject was written by Sir Francis Galton in 1892. The French policeman Bertillon developed a system of personal identification by bodily/physical measurements. It came to be known as the Bertillon system. From about 1910, the fingerprints became more broadly used, since it was easy to equate and stock in comparison to the Bertillon system where many measurements had to be taken from each body part, with many possible errors.
Nowadays, there exist large Automated Fingerprint Identification Systems (AFIS). In the early 1970s, computer based systems were viable for fingerprints. Face comparison is also commonly done at police stations. The scientific background of face comparisons still needs to be validated. In Forensic Science, there are several efforts for making a face comparison more independent. Despite the face databases that are available, automated searching in these databases is not realistic without going through many false hits.
Module-1 Forensic biometrics
Forensic biometrics has been used for an extended period. Through body measurements Alphonse Bertillon had developed the system of personal identification and developed known as Bertillon system. Fingerprint became extensively used after 1910, comparatively Bertillon system where so many body measurements had to be taken and it may be possible with error. Under this module, you will familiarize with the introduction and definition of forensic biometrics, types of biometrics tools, significance of biometrics in fingerprints, facial reconstruction, iris and retina scan, voice, DNA, handwriting, relevance in forensic science, model of biometric system, use of biometrics, advantages & disadvantages, general biometric system, biometrics difficulties and case studies.
Module-2 Pattern recognition techniques
In 1970, AFIS- Automated Fingerprint Identification System were very feasible for fingerprint record till today. It is a computer based system and largest network has above 30 million subjects in the database. Nowadays facial reconstruction is also very common in investigation and comparison. Iris, handwriting, DNA etc. are also generally used in Forensic. In forensic, also numerous other biometric features are used as evidence proof. The advantages of the biometric database like iris, face, handwriting, fingerprint etc. are that there exist more facts can be mined from them based on statistics.
