« One cannot be half pregnant…or the identification riddle »

 

The certainty of identification has been the dogma of fingerprint identification for a long time. Practice had forgotten the discussion of pioneers and until recent realisation that the error rate was non nil and the final attacks by the NAS report in the USA, most fingerprint specialists rejected the idea of a decision process brought with some difficulties. How many times have I heard « one cannot be half pregnant » when discussing the identification process in the 1990’s and early 2000’s?

Have we reached term? A small review of the riddle will be developed.
