Class Description: From
Minority Report, Angels & Demons, Mission Impossible, Blade Runner, Gattaca, and The Bourne Identity to The Simpsons and The Incredibles, biometric technologies like face recognition,
fingerprint recognition, iris scans, and voice recognition are either a nearly
impenetrable barriers to be cleverly foiled or the butt of a joke. Yet, biometrics are used every day to
autotag photos on Facebook and iPhoto
as well as in hardcore applications in immigration control and counter
terrorism.
Biometrics are used to identify
individuals from measurements of the face, hand geometry, iris, retina, finger,
ear, voice, speech, signature, lip motion, skin reflectance, DNA, and even body
odor. The first half of the course
provides the background in machine learning and imaging for anyone who has taken
calculus, linear algebra and probability and statistics. The second half of course will detail
individual biometrics, methods for spoofing biometrics, and policy
implications.
In a project spaced over the quarter,
students will implement a biometric method, system, or application of their
choice and appropriate to their background. Past topics have included ace recognition using Xbox Kinect, identification from electrocardiograms, face
recognition for Chez Bob, gesture interfaces, and recognition from wet
fingerprints.

Ereserve at: TBD
Prerequisites: Linear
algebra and Multivariable calculus (e.g. Math 20A & 20F), probability and
statistics (e.g., Math 183 or CSE190, A Practical Introduction to Probability and
Statistics), a good working knowledge of C, C++ or Matlab
programming.
Programming:
Assignments will include both written problem sets and programming assignments
in Matlab. Students can either purchase the Matlab student edition or use copies available on
University machines such as are available in the APE Lab
Grading:
Assignments:
40%
Term Project: 60%
Late Policy: Written
homework will be due in class and accepted thereafter with a penalty of 10% per
day starting from the due date. Programming assignments will have a handin
procedure described with the assignment, and also has a 10% per day late
penalty. No assignments will be accepted after the graded assignments have been
returned or the solutions have been released.
