Biometrics concerns the study of automated methods for identifying an individual or recognising an individual among many people by measuring one or more physical or behavioural features. Certain physical human features or behaviours 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.
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 the techniques supporting biometric identification and behaviour analysis.

He is a Full Professor in computer engineering at the University of Milan, Italy (since 2000). He has been Associate Professor at Polytechnic of Milan, Italy and Visiting Professor at the University of Texas at Austin, USA, and visiting researcher at George Mason University, USA.
He is Fellow of the IEEE, Distinguished Scientist of ACM, and Senior Member of INNS. He is IEEE Region 8 Director-elect (2021-22), will be IEEE Region 8 Director (2023-24), and has been IEEE Vice President for Technical Activities (2015), IEEE Director, President of the IEEE Systems Council, President of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society, Vice President for Education of the IEEE Biometrics Council, Vice President for Publications of the IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society and the IEEE Systems Council, and Vice President for Membership of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society.
Who Should Attend
This talk will review the main biometric traits and the techniques supporting biometric identification and behaviour analysis. Professor Vincenzo Piuri, IEEE Region 8 Director, will discuss Biometric Systems Design in more detail in follow up events on July 13th and July 18th.
This is a public lecture, all IEEE members and those who are interested in learning about biometric technologies and applications are welcome to attend this event.
