Dilan Seckiner from the University of Technology Sydney walked the FameLab Australia audience through how she uses science and surveillance footage to identify criminals.


Surveillance footage is often used by police when solving a crime. But what happens if the face is covered? By studying their gait, Dilan Seckiner is developing ways to use the way people walk as an identification tool. Everyone has a unique walk, and that walk gives away a lot about the person.

Science and technology is as much a part of our cultural fabric as art, music, theatre and literature. They play a significant role in our daily lives, yet, in a world dependent on science, we often take them for granted. Australia’s Science Channel believes every citizen has a right, and a responsibility, to be informed, and our mission is to create programs to bring that about.
