Abstract: Prof. Piuri is a world-renowned expert in the area of biometrics and has authored several books on this topic. He will discuss his recent work in the area of biometrics.
Biometrics concerns the study of automated methods for identifying an individual or recognizing an individual among many people by measuring one or more physical or behavioral features. Certain physical human features or behaviors are characteristics that are specific and can be uniquely associated to one person. Retinas, iris, DNA, fingerprint, palm print, or pattern of finger lengths are typical physical features that are specific to individuals. Also the voice print, gait, or handwriting can be used to this purpose.
Nowadays biometrics is rapidly evolving. This science is getting more and more accurate in recognizing and identifying persons and behaviors. Consequently, these technologies become more and more attractive and effective in critical applications, such as to create safe personal IDs, to control the access to personal information or physical areas, to recognize terrorists or criminals, to study the movements of people, to monitor the human behavior, and to create adaptive environments.
The use of biometrics in the real life often requires very complex signal and image processing and scene analysis, for example encompassing biometric feature extraction and identification, individual tracking, face tracking, eye tracking, liveness/anti-spoofing tests, and facial expression recognition.
This talk will review the main biometric traits and analyze the opportunities offered by biometric technologies and applications to support a broad variety of applications. Attention will be given to the current trends in research and applications.
About the speaker: Vincenzo Piuri is Full Professor at the University of Milan, Italy (since 2000), where he was also Department Chair (2007-2012). He was Associate Professor at Politecnico di Milano, Italy (1992-2000), visiting professor at the University of Texas at Austin, USA (summers 1996-1999), and visiting researcher at George Mason University, USA (summers 2012-2017).
He founded a start-up company, Sensure srl, in the area of intelligent systems for industrial applications (leading it from 2007 until 2010) and was active in industrial research projects with several companies.
He received his M.S. and Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from Politecnico di Milano, Italy.
His main research and industrial application interests are: intelligent systems, computational intelligence, pattern analysis and recognition, machine learning, signal and image processing, biometrics, intelligent measurement systems, industrial applications, distributed processing systems, internet-of-things, cloud computing, fault tolerance, application-specific digital processing architectures, and arithmetic architectures.
Note: Office bearers of IEEE and Faculty members will be able to have a meeting with Prof. Piuri after the seminar. Please indicate your interest when you fill the registration form.
