Biometrics is an emerging technology for automatic human identification and verification using unique biological traits. Compared to traditional identification and verification methods, biometrics is more convenient for users, reduces fraud, and is more secure. It is becoming an important ally of security, intelligence, law enforcement, and e-commerce. In this course, we will introduce the principle of various biometric technologies and systems. Especially we will analyze and design fingerprint recognition, face recognition, iris recognition, voice recognition, and multimodal biometric systems. Students will have hands-on experience in designing and analyzing biometric systems.
