For his part, Roberto Moreno, expert in Forensic Intelligence, spoke about technological evolution and its impact on human behaviour, both online and offline in his lecture on the use of digital documents, electronic, digital and digitised signatures in public and private institutions.
Finally, Federico Baudino, specialist in forensic reconstruction, spoke about the identification of graphic gestures with the use of software, answering whether software could replace the scientific method of study.
