Artificial Intelligence: AI Claims Aussie Pensioner Is A British Lord Wanted For Brutal 1974 Murder

November 8, 2022 | Artificial Intelligence, News

Lord Lucan is alleged to have killed a nanny and vanished in 1974.

Facial recognition analysis carried out be renowned expert Professor Hassan Ugail of the University of Bradford has established that an elderly pensioner living in Australia is a definite match for runaway murderer Lord Lucan. The researcher ran his AI algorithm, perfected over two decades, over 4,000 cross-checks of seven photos comprising four of Lucan and three of the unnamed Australian pensioner. (Mirror)

“They produced a match. This isn’t an opinion, it’s science and mathematical fact,” said Prof Ugail categorically. The pensioner was tracked down by Neil Berriman, the murdered nanny’s son.

Mr Berriman said: “I’ve spent nine years trying to prove this man is Lucan. Now, with this new scientific information, the police must act. “This isn’t emotion. It’s fact.”

A prestigious US company also conducted the same tests and arrived at the same conclusion.

“We can now confirm things that would have been impossible just five years ago,” said Prof Ugail. “We’ve compared thousands and thousands of people and there have been literally millions of photos that we’ve analyzed using the algorithm.”

“This algorithm has been trained on millions of photos. It has never been wrong.”

Lord Lucan, previously known as John Bingham, was held to be responsible for Sandra Rivett’s (the nanny) death, having allegedly bludgeoned her with a lead pipe, by an inquest jury in 1975.

Lucan was declared to be legally dead in 2016.
