Finding closure: the sorting of human remains
The deposition of human remains in mass graves is common after events such as a natural disaster or war. In order to achieve the greatest success when sorting the remains of different individuals, proper techniques must be employed. A major limitation of current methods, however, is that they do not take into account the three-dimensional morphology of adjoining surfaces. Addressing this, the EU-funded Human Jigsaw project will combine state-of-the-art techniques in three-dimensional geometric morphometrics and machine learning for the sorting of human remains.
