PRA Lab opens novel positions for PhD and post-doc co-workers
Research topic: Integration of fingerprint and face liveness detection into personal verification systems. One of the main research issues in multi-modal biometrics is overcoming the well-known limits of these systems against spoofing or presentation attacks. Solutions proposed so far have shown not to be satisfactory in terms of the trade-off between accuracy and security. Introducing a liveness detector still causes a decrease of GAR against an increase of FAR and SFAR, and this loss of accuracy/security is often unacceptable. Therefore, novel paradigms and solutions need to be proposed and investigated.
Research topic: Highly efficient and performant algorithms for multi-modal biometric verification in mobile devices. Mobile devices are becoming widespread. Their intensive use for many applications beside standard phone calls, needs to be guaranteed in privacy and safety, including activity against terrorism and criminal frauds. We intend to investigate the possibility of implementing highly efficient algorithms for combining biometrics as fingerprint and face into a powerful recognition systems to be used under uncontrolled conditions. These algorithms will work on mobile devices (Android).
Main goal of the PRA Lab’s Biometric Division is to challenge stimulating and important open problems like these ones, in order to publish the research results into high-level journals and conferences.
Working with us also means:
- Being involved in international research projects
- Working at the organization of International Competition on Fingerprint Liveness Detection (LivDet) which is now at its fourth edition and will be hosted by the IEEE fifth Int. Conference on Biometrics: Technology, Applications and Systems (Sept., 8-11, 2015, Washington DC, USA)
