BRIEF: The Convergence of Biometrics and Computer Vision

BRIEF: The Convergence of Biometrics and Computer Vision

Artificial intelligence has always been an important component of biometric technology. In a sense, biometric recognition is artificial intelligence, enabling a computer system to correctly match a fingerprint or an iris pattern to a template on file. But it’s undeniable that AI in its broader sense is coming to play a bigger role in biometric…

Fake ‘Master Key’ Fingerprints Can Fool Systems Over 20% of the Time: Researchers

Fake ‘Master Key’ Fingerprints Can Fool Systems Over 20% of the Time: Researchers

“The system was developed using a generative adversarial network, a machine learning system in which one deep neural network is pitted against another, allowing the spoofing system to refine its efforts over time until it had established its highly effective DeepMasterPrints.” Researchers at New York University have developed a neural network system that they say…
