Zespół Biometrii i Uczenia Maszynowego IAiIS zaprasza na seminarium Biometric Usability Assessment and Identity Linkages: Recent Studies at Kent.

Prelegent: dr Richard Guest, School of Engineering and Digital Arts, University of Kent, United Kingdom.

8 października (czwartek), godz. 1215 – 1400, sala 116

Conventional research into biometrics has focussed on the development of algorithmic solutions to enhance verification and identification of subjects. Large-scale deployment of biometric systems however reveal other issues that need to be considered, two of which are highlighted in this presentation.

 

An important aspect within the design of systems is ensuring that the implementation maximises usability so that performance errors are not unduly introduced through poor/confusing process, feedback or instructions given to the user. In this presentation we outline a usability assessment procedure and introduce a generic framework that uses the Human Biometric Sensor Interaction method for establishing the source of errors (and potential errors).

 

Understanding how identity factors (biometric or otherwise) can be linked, inferred or predicted from various sources gives rise to the potential to enhance verification mechanisms and to also recognise potential weaknesses in an identity eco-system. In another recent project we have investigated how biometric sample content can be modelled to form linkagesto demographic and cyber behaviour (based on theoretical and experimental data), which can be subsequently explored in defensive or interrogative modes.
