All Faculty, students, and staff welcome to attend.

Abstract:  Human identity recognition is one of the key mechanisms of ensuring proper asset and information access to individuals, which is the base of many government, social services, consumer, financial and recreational activities in the society. Biometrics are also increasingly used in a cybersecurity context to mitigate vulnerabilities and to ensure protection against unauthorized access or estimate risk level.

This lecture will discuss how deep learning methods can enhance biometric recognition accuracy in a variety of settings: unimodal and multi-modal systems, social behavioral biometrics, activity recognition and risk assessment. The lecture will further present design of biometric systems, some recently developed deep learning architectures, and will conclude with some practical case studies and discussion of open problems.
