Hi chaps,

 

S'been a while. Rather hoping I can beg a few minutes of a few of your time to help me with my Masters MSc project.

 

Basically, I'm looking for victims participants for my MSc study. Here's a bit about it:

 

I am currently undertaking a MSc in Forensic Mark Comparison at the University of Wolverhampton - the focus of my study is to determine whether infrared 'night vision' CCTV affects one's ability to identify a subject from the imagery.
Basically, all you have to do is look at a few CCTV clips and try to identify the filmed individual from a series of photos. It is literally that straightforward.
 
I would just ask that, if you start, please finish - I have quite a lot of unusable ones because people did maybe three then clicked off. :(
 
The link to the survey is: https://www.classmarker.com/online-test/start/?quiz=t765903dd4aeac29 . The front page contains more detailed information.
 
Many thanks for any takers.
 
Ash/Paradox/Comrade Jerkov/Whatever else you know me as or refer to me as behind my back. :)

I would be very interested in reading your finished work with this.  I'm currently conducting a related study and I had not yet considered infrared exposure in it.  I'll see if I can get you a few extra participants.

Much appreciated. What is your study on, out of interest? As I don't float round here so much anymore feel free to keep in touch with me at ash@forensicvideo.co.uk - I might be able to offer some assistance, and I'll let you know how my study turns out.

I've been studying the psychological effects of prolonged exposure to digital imagery.  Your project seems to be focused on short-term exposure, but I am curious how infrared imagery effects cognitive stimuli in comparison to standard resolutions.  Yea, I can keep in contact, though I do hope you post more of your research in the future.  Revora has had a disturbing lack of interest in the sciences recently.

Or ever. :p

 

I wasn't aware there were psychological effects of exposure to digital imagery? Or is it the specific content of the imagery that is important? So, for example, criminal offence or road traffic collision footage?

So you're not trying to find the person most likely to get away with a bank robbery?

The women with glasses would win that category.

 

There is plenty of weird psychology involved with basic exposure to televised imagery.  Looking at screens all day is so common in this decade, it's not difficult to believe human behavior is dictated by specific combinations of imagery and color generated by monitors and televisions.  For example, I'm certain this very conversation would be entirely different if Revora wasn't so blue.  Content can be important as well, thanks to wondrous effects of mirror neurons.  Mammals learn and adapt based on observation, so if you would expose a common person to footage of criminal activity, there is a weighted chance that this individual's unique neural chemistry, based on their catalog of observational data, would cause them to either feel sympathy or indifference.  But with the right combinations of color and imagery integrated with the same video, as well as sound, it is shockingly easy to force feelings of sympathy / indifference, usually regardless of the content.

Next time, consider putting in somebody physically attractive instead of the mutations and social degenerates of the current batch.

 

Edit: Identifying subjects on the night vision camera was substantially easier.  There was less natural light glare obfuscating facial characteristics.

Thought I'd have that here to save time.

Thanks for that feedback - I'll be sure to mention that. It wasn't really possible to control for the light but I sort of figured it'd be a problem...

 

You have no idea how fucking hard it was to get people to actually participate. Worse, I only had literally two days to play with since I live in Peterborough (much to my annoyance) and study in Wolverhampton...

Ah, Wolverhampton.  Where the women look like men, the men look like potatoes and I was too disturbed to go into a grocers to find out what the potatoes looked like.  I don't know if it was because the night vision mode was monochromatic or if the lighting quality was better or even if it was just the higher contrast but even with the inherent grain, the details were a lot clearer and more defined with night vision.

We can always rely on you to come around when lighting and small cities in England need ridiculed, Caspa.

We may have to disguise it as some sort of click-bait quiz, promising free fidget spinners if you get all the questions right.

Probably.

 

Bump. :p

 

Survey closes at the end of the month - I have 67 completed so far - would love to get to triple figures. :)

 

Many thanks in anticipation.
