A Bayesian key is a computer-aided method for biological identification. A traditional biological key is a series of branching questions which must be answered in order to arrive at a correct identification. But these keys can be cumbersome, error-prone, and do not match users' approach to the task. Multi-access keys based on Bayesian statistics promise quicker and more robust identification that matches the users' task. We are developing these for the web and for mobile devices.
