Adopting biometric technology : challenges and solutions by Ravindra Das

By Ravindra Das

Many kinds of safeguard applied sciences are at the moment in use, with biometrics being one of many most up-to-date and such a lot state of the art kinds that has been produced for mass program. Biometrics, whereas interesting, is frequently broached with hesitation and negative figuring out. Adopting Biometric know-how: demanding situations and options advocates elevated implementation of biometric expertise parts of the area the place it's been least accredited, rather within the United States.

This publication appears to be like at a number of particular functions of biometric know-how, hard concerns that experience obstructed using biometrics in safety and supplying practical 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 protection. the second one part provides case stories of particular purposes, resembling e-passports and e-voting, that experience already been applied and will be increased into areas the place utilization is low. The 3rd part lays out a case for the overall practicality and price that biometrics bargains to proper enterprise sectors, together with the advantages of imposing the at the moment arguable know-how rather than the traditional sorts of verification.

While biometric expertise has been poorly accredited and followed within the usa in addition to different constructed countries, it truly is already a favored device in constructing countries in Asia, Africa, and japanese Europe. Adopting Biometric Technology examines the societal resistance hindering the wider utilization of biometrics and gives useful ideas for overcoming these obstacles whereas displaying how its elevated program will be total advantageous.

Control of Flexible-link Manipulators Using Neural Networks

Keep an eye on of Flexible-link Manipulators utilizing Neural Networks addresses the problems that come up in controlling the end-point of a manipulator that has an important quantity of structural flexibility in its hyperlinks. The non-minimum part attribute, coupling results, nonlinearities, parameter adaptations and unmodeled dynamics in any such manipulator all give a contribution to those problems.

Fouriertransformation für Ingenieur- und Naturwissenschaften

Dieses Lehrbuch wendet sich an Studenten der Ingenieurfächer und der Naturwissenschaften. Durch seinen systematischen und didaktischen Aufbau vermeidet es ungenaue Formulierungen und legt so die Grundlage für das Verständnis auch neuerer Methoden. Indem die klassische und die Funktionalanalysis auf der foundation des Fourieroperators zusammengeführt werden, vermittelt es ein fundiertes und verantwortbares Umgehen mit der Fouriertransformation.

Automated Theorem Proving: Theory and Practice

Because the twenty first century starts off, the ability of our magical new device and associate, the pc, is expanding at an miraculous fee. desktops that practice billions of operations in keeping with moment at the moment are typical. Multiprocessors with hundreds of thousands of little desktops - fairly little! -can now perform parallel computations and resolve difficulties in seconds that very few years in the past took days or months.

Practical Probabilistic Programming

Functional Probabilistic Programming introduces the operating programmer to probabilistic programming. during this publication, you will instantly paintings on functional examples like development a unsolicited mail filter out, diagnosing computing device approach information difficulties, and convalescing electronic pictures. you will discover probabilistic inference, the place algorithms assist in making prolonged predictions approximately matters like social media utilization.

Example text

For instance, scientific studies have proven that even identical twins have different retinal structures. Just like the iris, the retina hardly ever changes during the lifetime of an individual (unless that particular individual suffers from such physical ailments as glaucoma or diabetes), and is also considered to be an “internal” type of biometrics. Retinal recognition suffers from a number of issues, from both the technical and social perspectives. For example, the technology developed for retinal recognition demands that the end user sit at a very close distance to the camera.

This involves the specialized filtering and indexing of the biometric templates and their associated information and data, and optimization of search results, especially when identifying a particular individual. However, this winnowing technique can also damage the structural integrity of the biometrics database and can lead to major search and retrieval errors. As we have addressed in multimodal biometric systems, biometric templates from very different modalities are collected and are often stored into one database (and it if is large enough, the database will have to be partitioned in order to optimize the search results).

For instance, this particular individual may be attempting to gain access to the business or organization, or to the network resources. For example, a fingerprint recognition reader can be used at the same time as an iris scanner in order to confirm the identity of an individual. Introduction 27 2. 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.
