Summary

Expert Bytes: Computer Expertise in Forensic Documents  Players, Needs, Resources and Pitfalls introduces computer scientists and forensic document examiners to the computer expertise of forensic documents and assists them with the design of research projects in this interdisciplinary field. This is not a textbook on how to perform the actual forensic document expertise or program expertise software, but a project design guide, an anthropological inquiry, and a technology, market, and policies review.

After reading this book you will have deepened your knowledge on:

  • What computational expertise of forensic documents is
  • What has been done in the field so far and what the future looks like
  • What the expertise is worth, what its public image is, and how to improve both
  • Who is doing what in the field, where, and for how much
  • How the expertise software functions

The primary target readers are computer scientists and forensic document examiners, at the student and professional level. Paleographers, historians of science and technology, and scientific policy makers can also profit from the book.

Concise and practical, featuring an attractive and functional layout design, the book is supplemented with graphical data representations, statistics, resource lists, and extensive references to facilitate further study.
