The Bloodhound AI engine can be trained and tuned to deliver results

Although the AI is able to continuously move across iterations, the interface was designed to gate the AI's resulting matches for review by a human analyst.

Complex Pedigrees And Network Mapping Engine

Complex relationships

Whatever the structure, the pedigree mapping engine will detect it and display it.

Multi-generations and multi missing nodes

The AI's scoring and mapping capability outshines all other methods on complex pedigrees.

Network of related pedigrees

When too little genetic information is available to solve the kinship structure, the network mapping engine can display the individual in a network of related pedigrees.

Understanding confidence intervals

Why are they important to forensic kinship analysis?

Understanding impact of allele variability
And pedigree structures on matching performance

figure1

Let’s imagine a simple pedigree structure with 2 genotyped parents and a missing child.

figure2

Other pedigrees with the same structure and different starting alleles, yield very different confidence intervals…

And different error rates

Getting the best answer
You Can Get

Bloodhound uses an artificial intelligence powered engine and network analysis for match optimization. A recently performed large scale study of over 10,000 simulated pedigrees and missing individuals demonstrated the Bloodhound classifier outperformed a classifier that relied on LR score rankings alone by an average 17%.

What’s new in Bloodhound

The latest Bloodhound delivers unmatched precision, performance and flexibility to forensic kinship analysis.

Objective and quantified

Introducing performance quantitation to forensics.

Let the Bloodhound AI show you the impact of different allele combinations or permutations in pedigree structures on your ability to find the correct match.

Network analysis

First use of AI and network analysis in forensics. Input pedigrees are quickly organized into higher order structures with similar solution characteristics for faster results.

Learn and solve

Iterative resolution of structures with multiple missing individuals. With each new pedigree Bloodhound learns something new and processes new data a little faster.

Access anywhere

Mobile access. Connect to Bloodhound from your favorite device, whenever you need to and wherever you are.

Platform versatility

Performance optimization across multiple technology platforms. Whatever the resources at hand, Bloodhound has been designed to make the best of it and process the data efficiently.
