From the early days, when security was the driving force behind biometric research, today's challenges go far beyond security. Machine learning, Image understanding, Signal analysis, Neuroscience, Robotics, Forensic science, Digital forensics and other disciplines, converged in a truly multidisciplinary effort to devise and build advanced systems to facilitate the interpretation of signals recorded from individuals acting in a given environment. This is what we simply call today "Biometrics".
What are the most up-to-date core biometric technologies developed in the field? What is the potential impact of biometrics in forensic investigation and crime prevention? What can we learn from human perception? How to deploy current Deep Learning approaches? How to deal with adversarial attacks in biometric recognition?
This school follows the successful track of the International Summer Schools on Biometrics held since 2003. In this 17th edition, the courses will mainly focus on new and emerging issues:
- Biometrics for social interactions and emerging applications;
- How to exploit new biometric technologies in forensic and security applications;
- Evaluation and assessment of biometric and forensic applications;
- Deep Learning for biometrics, forensic identification and Identity Science.
The courses will provide a clear and in-depth picture on the state-of-the-art in biometric verification/identification technology, both under the theoretical and scientific point of view as well as in diverse application domains.
The lectures will be given by 18 outstanding experts in the field, from both academia and industry.
An advanced feature of this summer school will be some practical sessions to better understand, "hands on", the real potential of today's biometric technologies.
