A House Without Foundation

Interhack founder C. Matthew Curtin presents "A House Without Foundation" and related topics at Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio on July 27, 2019.

As Bowling Green State University (BGSU) computer science faculty and students delve into the question of forensic applications of computing, Curtin highlights specific cases to show how the poor practice of forensic science has led to results that are improper and dangerous for a free society.

Using the cases as a basis to develop an understanding of what the proper practice of forensic science, and particularly forensic computer science means, Curtin offers practices that can help practitioners understand and manage various cognitive biases. Going further, Curtin advises understanding the limits of the tools and technology, ensuring that experts recognize the limits of their practice and how to inform decision-makers without misleading them.
