Seeing More Clearly with Glasses?: The Impact of Glasses and Technology on Unfamiliar Face Matching and Identification of Facial Composites

Conference Proceeding
McIntyre, A. H., Hancock, P. J., Frowd, C. D., & Bruce, V. (2010)
Seeing More Clearly with Glasses?: The Impact of Glasses and Technology on Unfamiliar Face Matching and Identification of Facial Composites. In 2010 International Conference on Emerging Security Technologies (EST)doi:10.1109/est.2010.30
The development of facial identification technologies is of vital importance for security. We demonstrate that psychology can ensure innovation produces applications with effe...

Effecting an improvement to the fitness function. How to evolve a more identifiable face.

Conference Proceeding
Frowd, C., Park, J., McIntyre, A., Bruce, V., Pitchford, M., Fields, S., …Hancock, P. J. (2008)
Effecting an improvement to the fitness function. How to evolve a more identifiable face. In ECSIS Symposium on Bio-inspired Learning and Intelligent Systems for Security, 2008. BLISS '08doi:10.1109/bliss.2008.28
Constructing the face of a criminal from the selection of individual facial parts is a hard task. We have been working on a new system called EvoFIT that involves the selectio...

Conference Proceeding
Frowd, C. D., Bruce, V., Gannon, C., Robinson, M., Tredoux, C., Park, J., …Hancock, P. J. (2007)
Evolving the face of a criminal: How to search a face space more effectively. In ECSIS Symposium on Bio-inspired, Learning, and Intelligent Systems for Security, 2007. BLISS 2007doi:10.1109/bliss.2007.28
Witnesses and victims of serious crime are often required to construct a facial composite, a visual likeness of a suspect's face. The traditional method is for them to select ...

Adding Holistic Dimensions to a Facial Composite System

Conference Proceeding
Frowd, C., Bruce, V., McIntyre, A., & Hancock, P. (2006)
Adding Holistic Dimensions to a Facial Composite System. In 7th International Conference on Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition, 2006. FGR 2006doi:10.1109/fgr.2006.20
Facial composites are typically constructed by witnesses to crime by describing a suspect?s face and then selecting facial features from a kit of parts. Unfortunately, when pr...

Over-Observed? What is the quality of CCTV in this new digital legal world?

Conference Proceeding
Bromby, M., & Ness, H. (2006)
Over-Observed? What is the quality of CCTV in this new digital legal world?. https://doi.org/10.1080/13600860600580843
Much research and debate has focussed on the value of CCTV and the associated criminological aspects such as whether crime is reduced, or simply displaced, by its use. The aim...
