The guys discuss why the model was developed, how it’s being used, and some of the models limitations.

Categorical vs. Probabilistic

Categorical vs. Probabilistic

Glenn Langenburg and Eric Ray tackle two articles in one fantastic episode. First, “Lay Understanding of ‘Identification’: How Jurors Interpret Forensic Identification Testimony” by Henry Swofford and Jessica Cino from the Journal of Forensic Identification. Secondly, the guys tackle a paper from the Journal of Forensic Sciences, “Comparing Categorical and Probabilistic Fingerprint Evidence” by Brandon Garrett, et al. The big question is: should we say “identification” or should we express the same conclusion in a probabilistic manner?
