A Two Day National Workshop on Forensic Photo Facial Analysis is to be held on 23rd and 24th November 2019 at the International Youth Hostel, New Delhi. The workshop is being organized by the Capability Development Institute in association with Sherlock Institute of Forensic Science India, Clue4 Evidence Forensic Lab, Bangalore & International Association of Scientists and Researchers.
The workshop on Forensic Photo Facial Analysis is useful for insurance claim finalisation, bank document disputes, entrance exams, matrimonial settlements, etc. The motive behind conducting this workshop is to provide a hands on experience on Forensic Photo Facial Analysis.
The workshop would cover briefing with demonstrations, hands on experience using known faces, exercises for participants with unknown faces, remark on the tasks solved by the participants, and discussion on the conclusion(s) made by the participants.
We, the humans have always had the distinctive ability to recognize and distinguish between faces. Recently, the computers have also shown the same ability. The technology has become so advanced that even the computers are able to recognize the human faces. For this purpose, the facial recognition software has come a long way.
Facial recognition is an approach by which the human face can be recognized through the use of technology. It uses biometrics in order to map the facial features from a photograph or video. Also, it compares the information with a database of known faces to find a match.
In forensic investigation, the facial image comparison is often needed and this technology thus proves worthwhile here. In three different ways facial image can be compared: the photogrammetry or ‘facial mapping’, image superimposition, and morphological analysis.
Thus, the workshop on Forensic Photo Facial Analysis is a great platform for the investigation enthusiasts in order to acquire skill and build a grip on the subject matter.
The renowned experts from all over India would be the speakers in this workshop. The speakers Mr. Raj Shrivastava (Senior Forensic Scientist, State FSL, Govt. of MP), Mr. Phaneendar B N (CEO, Clue4 Evidence Forensic Lab, Bengaluru), and Mr. Ranjeet Kr. Singh (CEO, SIFS India, New Delhi) are having expertise in the subject as well as in their respective arenas of the field.
As far as the benefits from this workshop are concerned; at the end of this workshop, participants will be able to establish the identity of an unknown face, they will be able to recognize the authentic person in real document photos such as Passport, Marksheet, Driving License, Adhar, etc., furthermore, they will be able to compare the facial photos in different documents in possession of a person. Not only they will be able to examine the alleged alteration, intermixing or digital modification in facial photos but also differentiate the real and created photographs as well. The study material, kit, and stationary everything would be provided to the participants. They just need to bring their own laptops so that they can get a better and easier learning experience.
