Image-based biometry

Resource | v1 | created by jjones |
Type Course
Created unavailable
Identifier 63554


The course relies mostly on computer vision, as most biometrics technologies are based on it. Students interested in cutting edge technology, much of which is still in a research stage, are the intended target for the course. The course gives the overview of the research field. The main content (will evolve due to developments in the field): - Biometry basics - Biometrical modalities - Structure of a typical biometric system - Recognition/verification/identification - Metrics - Conditions for correct comparisons of the systems (databases, frameworks) - Performance and usefulness of the systems - Computer vision as the foundation of the biometric systems - Fingerprint - Iris - Face - Gait - Ear - Multi-biometric systems / multi-modality / fusions - Key problems of modalities/systems (research challenges) The lectures introduce the approaches and explain their operation. At tutorial the knowledge is applied to practical problems in Matlab and open source tools.

Very outdated approaches are taught. Weird assignments.
Overall seems useless. State-of-the-art CNNs are mentioned only slightly. First lab assignment was to Google for face images and it was worth third of all points from labs.
