Course title
Essentials of Bayesian networks in forensic science
Bayesian networks (BN) are innovative and are gaining more and more widespread use within many professional branches. This on-line course gives a comprehensive view of the use of BNs for the probabilistic evaluation of scientific evidence in forensic science applications. It provides students with room for an incremental and in-depth study of the various aspects that a solid mastery of BNs in practical applications demands. The course content is based on the use of likelihood ratios, an approach that is supported by the International Society of Forensic Genetics, the European Network of Forensic Science Institutes and the Association of Forensic Science Providers.
