|Title:||Defining AFIS Latent Print ,Lights-OutŠ|
|Published:||September 08, 2011|
|Abstract:||The term ,lights-outŠ for AFIS ten-print fingerprint operations has been around for many years and is generally understood to mean ,no human intervention is involved.Š But is this term appropriate for AFIS latent print operations? This IR examines seven scenarios, defined herein as tiers 1 through 7, entailing ever increasing amounts of automation. Some of the salient pros and cons of each tier are briefly discussed. It is suggested that more complete analysis of the seven tiers requires a good cost/benefit model.|
