Abstract/Summary The matching of latent fingerprints to either their patent or other latent counterparts typically occurs in one of two contexts of item similarity: (1) following a search of a computer data-base for the most similar print images to the to-bematched or target print, or (2) matching a target print to a set of likely matches (suspect and elimination prints). In the former context, hits are unlikely and the likelihood of false-positives is presumably high, whereas in the latter context, hits are quite likely with little expectation of false-positives (at least as a function of similarity). The role of such intra- and inter-item similarity is explored in a fingerprint matching task using both human observers and an autoassociative neural-net simulation.
