Bayesian Networks and Argumentation in Evidence Analysis

Some of the workshop participants
On 26-29 September 2016 a workshop on "Bayesian Networks and Argumentation in Evidence Analysis" took place at the Isaac Newton Institute Cambridge. This workshop, which was part of the FOS Programme was also the first public workshop of the ERC-funded project Bayes-Knowledge (ERC-2013-AdG339182-BAYES_KNOWLEDGE).

The workshop was a tremendous success, attracting many of the world's leading scholars in the use of Bayesian networks in law and forensics. Most of the presentations were filmed and can now be viewed here.

There was also a pre-workshop meeting on 23-24 September where participants focused on an important Dutch case that recently went to appeal. The partcipants were divided into two groups - one group developed a BN model of the case and the other developed an agumentation/scenarios-based model of the case. We plan to further develop these and write up the results.
