Commentary and Opinions

By Jonathan McDonaldMany government organizations are charged with combating terrorism, identifying criminals and effectively applying immigration policies. All these activities require that persons of interests (and organizations and networks) be accurately identified. Identification is an extremely complex process that is only compounded by increasing data volumes, complex relationships, and tightly coupled application and data architectures.
By Jennifer Tidy and Parham AarabiVirtual aging of photos is often used by law enforcement for finding and capturing fugitives, abducted or lost individuals, or even terrorists.  However, on some occasions the photos are either unrealistic or inaccurate.  Furthermore, these photos are often generated by combining multiple stock photos (i.e. hair from stock photo 1, eyes from stock photo 2, etc.). While such a feature cut-and-paste method may be easy to do, it does not often produce the most realistic results.
