Speakers: Ana Sequeira

Biometric recognition and presentation attack detection (PAD) methods strongly rely on deep learning algorithms. Though often more accurate, these models operate as complex black boxes. Interpretability tools are being used to delve deeper into the operation of these methods and we advocate their integration in the PAD scenario.The work presented will focus on face PAD CNN-based models analysis through evaluation with traditional PAD metrics and with interpretability tools. We will go through the topic and recent works that confirm the urge to establish new approaches in biometrics that incorporate interpretability tools
