About the Event
As the use of biometric technologies increases, so does privacy worries
about the misuse of biometrics (fingerprints etc.) stored in central databases.
In the first half of the talk, I will introduce the biometric privacy problem
and present some proposed template protection mechanisms from the literature.
In particular, I will talk about our suggestion for layering multiple biometrics
of an individual (e.g. two fingerprints or a fingerprint and a voice pass-phrase)
in one multi-biometric template. The method makes it infeasible to separate the
raw biometric data and difficult to link multiple biometric databases, to track an
Berrin Yanikoglu received her Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from Dartmouth College, USA in 1993. After working on handwriting recognition and document understanding problems, at Xerox Imaging Systems and IBM Almaden Research Center, she has joined Sabanci University, Turkey in 2000 where she is currently a full professor. Dr. Yanikoglu’s research interests lies in the areas of pattern recognition and machine learning with applications to image understanding and text analytics. She has received first/second place positions in several international signature verification competitions and plant identification campaigns along with her students and colleagues.
