Cohort 3 researcher Orange Gao was invited to be a main stage presenter at Teesside Digital Forensics Conference (TDFCon 2018), a student-led international conference for computer and digital forensics students at Teesside University.

The theme for conference this year was ‘Resilient and Secure Societies’ and focussed on understanding and developing responses to the complex range of inter-related global processes that create risk and threaten the physical and emotional security of individuals, communities and societies.  Attendees included students, academics, practitioners, police officers from local forces, and some government agency/civil service employees. Orange spoke about artificial intelligence from the perspective of computer vision and related it to digital forensics. She described her recent work using recent advances in deep learning technology to generate images from verbal descriptions for accurate facial composites in criminal investigations. This novel approach reduces subjectivity in decision making and increase law enforcement response times.
