Abstract: 

In this talk I will discuss how expert witnesses in criminal trials can give useful Bayesian analyses of complex criminal cases. I will discuss several questions that have to be answered to make Bayesian networks useful in this context and what kinds of expertise are required to answer these questions. The discussions will be partly based on my recent experiences as an expert witness in a murder trial and a serial arson case.
