So what can be done with the AI Photo Analysis results from the Declassified show? It seems like this sort of photo-matching analysis is done all the time on these kinds of shows, and never actually results in anything but a good TV moment. We're now at the point where a computer programmer can create a result that can't be challenged since we don't have any idea how the computer came to the conclusions it came to. It's very frustrating since anyone looking at the Cooper sketches and a photo of McCoy can tell they are very different.

It is amazing how some people treat the sketches (plural) as photographs. By definition a sketch is not real.
Some men see things as they are, and ask why? I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?

OMG the Duane Weber sketch thing was greasy. How many years after the hijacking? And based mainly on Flo's description, which even back in the day was subject to change here and there. Reading her versions of events always causes a lot of re-reading - trying to pin down exactly when and how many times he donned the glasses, for example. It's been a while but I seem to remember there being two Flo versions of that in 1971. The eye colour is listed as brown solely on Flo's description, and was modified later to "possibly brown", so she wasn't that sure. She also came across as the witness most affected by the stress of the situation - Tina spent more time with Cooper and seems to have kept a cooler head. And Bill Mitchell didn't know he was looking at a hijacker. I tend to put the most weight on Tina and Bill's descriptions, along with Nancy House's description of the white bag (also mentioned by Bill). That description was very detailed, and she freely admitted she could not definitely describe the man himself, so there's a ring of conscientious honesty to her description. The later "Weber" sketch looks so unlike any of the other sketches, it's laughable. Can't take it seriously.
