Date and Time:
Tuesday, March 21, 14:00 – 16:00

The workshop will focus on issues with triage, preselection, identification, argumentation, explainability, demonstrates uses of AI in forensic science. We try to exemplify the challenges of using AI in all stages of the forensic examination.Challenges for the presentation in court are discussed as well as solutions.

The workshop will give an overview of the state of the art of applying Artificial Intelligence in Forensic Science. Issues with validation and new crimes that are possible due to using AI are discussed such as deepfakes.

Workshop organiser:

Zeno Geradts is a senior forensic scientist at the Netherlands Forensic Institute and also 1 day a week professor by special appointment on forensic data science at the University of Amsterdam (UvA). He is chairman of the ENFSI Forensic IT working group and is Past President of the American Academy of Forensic Science, where he is also founding member of the Digital and Multimedia Sciences Section. He is one of the directors of the joint ICAI Laboratory with NFI and UvA on AI4Forensics, and will present on deepfakes.

Adi Stoykova is currently an assistant-professor in technology law in the University of Groningen (RUG) and an affiliated advisor in the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). In 2022, Adi Stoykova defended a dual PhD in law and information security from RUG and NTNU. She holds a LL.M. in IT and IP law from Leibniz University Hannover, Germany. A central topic in her research is fair trial compliance and developing of international frameworks and standards for reliability validation in digital evidence processing for criminal proceedings.

Harm van Beek is a senior digital-forensic scientist at the Netherlands Forensic Institute (NFI). His work consists of performing examinations in criminal cases (court expert) and conducting scientific research in the digital forensic field. Harm is co-founder of the forensic investigation, innovation and knowledge sharing platform Hansken. He was technical director of CASE, an international standard for sharing cyber-investigation traces. Harm obtained his PhD in formal methods (computer science) at the Eindhoven University of Technology (2005).

Jan William Johnsen is a researcher at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), where he is working in the Digital Forensics Group. His research interests include data- and computational-driven investigation to proactively stop cybercriminal actors. The methods being investigated include mathematical graph theory and application of machine learning to understand the complex phenomena of identifying high-profile cybercriminals in criminal underground networks.
