Adopting biometric technology : challenges and solutions by Ravindra Das

By Ravindra Das

Many varieties of defense applied sciences are at the moment in use, with biometrics being one of many newest and such a lot state-of-the-art kinds that has been produced for mass software. Biometrics, whereas fascinating, is usually broached with hesitation and terrible figuring out. Adopting Biometric know-how: demanding situations and strategies advocates elevated implementation of biometric expertise parts of the area the place it's been least permitted, quite within the United States.

This publication appears at a number of particular purposes of biometric know-how, hard concerns that experience obstructed using biometrics in safety and providing real looking options for expanding its around the globe usage. it's divided into 3 sections, with the 1st discussing societal boundaries opposed to the adoption of biometric know-how in defense. the second one part offers case reports of particular functions, resembling e-passports and e-voting, that experience already been applied and will be accelerated into areas the place utilization is low. The 3rd part lays out a case for the final practicality and cost that biometrics bargains to correct company sectors, together with the advantages of enforcing the presently arguable know-how instead of the traditional sorts of verification.

While biometric expertise has been poorly authorised and followed within the usa in addition to different built international locations, it really is already a well-liked software in constructing countries in Asia, Africa, and jap Europe. Adopting Biometric Technology examines the societal resistance hindering the wider utilization of biometrics and offers functional strategies for overcoming these limitations whereas exhibiting how its elevated program will be total advantageous.

Symbol Grounding and Beyond: Third International Workshop on the Emergence and Evolution of Linguistic Communications, EELC 2006, Rome, Italy,

This e-book constitutes the refereed lawsuits of the 3rd overseas Workshop at the Emergence and Evolution of Linguistic communique, EELC 2006, held in Rome, Italy, in September/October 2006. The 12 revised complete papers provided including five invited papers have been conscientiously reviewed and chosen from a number of submissions.

Mathematics for the analysis of algorithms

This monograph collects a few basic mathematical ideas which are required for the research of algorithms. It builds at the basics of combinatorial research and complicated variable thought to offer the various significant paradigms utilized in the right research of algorithms, emphasizing the tougher notions.

Text mining and visualization : case studies using open-source tools

Textual content Mining and Visualization: Case experiences utilizing Open-Source instruments offers an creation to textual content mining utilizing the most well known and strong open-source instruments: KNIME, RapidMiner, Weka, R, and Python. The contributors—all hugely skilled with textual content mining and open-source software—explain how textual content info are amassed and processed from a large choice of assets, together with books, server entry logs, web pages, social media websites, and message forums.

Asynchronous biometric systems: Under this particular scenario, two or more biometric devices are used to confirm the identity of an individual. Again, the same examples of fingerprint recognition and iris recognition can be used. However, rather than devices being used exactly at the same time, these two biometric devices are used in a sequential fashion, with one device being used first, then the other device being used second. Therefore, in this particular situation, first the iris recognition device could be used to verify the particular individual at the main premises of the business, and subsequently, the fingerprint recognition device could be used to provide a further means of security (assuming, for example, that the particular individual needs to gain access to a more secure area at the place of business or organization).

Introduction 33 Some of these key considerations include the following: • The various height variances as well as differences between the end user population. • The actual frequency of usage of the particular biometric modality. For example, if a device is not used very frequently, and if the end user population is small enough (perhaps less than 10 employees), then it might make more sense to offer special assistance to the end users who are physically challenged. • Perhaps even, the biometric modality can be contained in a semiprivate area and cordoned off to give the end user a sense of privacy, although he or she completes the enrollment and verification processes.

This could prove to be very costly as well as time consuming. Gait Recognition Although this future biometric modality is still under heavy research and development, it promises to hold strong potential as a viable technology. Preliminary research even indicates that if this is truly the case, it would even have very strong levels of end user acceptance, due to its noninvasive nature. However, once it is proven as a viable biometric, it can also be used very covertly in mass application settings, such as those of the international airports, in order to track down known terror suspects.
