Talk on biometrics
Dr. Vir Phoha, professor of electrical engineering and computer science in the College of Engineering and Computer Science at Syracuse University, will give a presentation titled "Trends and Emerging Areas in Biometrics." Body movements (such as typing and swiping on a mobile phone) and thinking patterns (measured for example by blood flow in the brain while the subject is doing simple arithmetic) provide sufficient cues to be used as biometrics modalities. Both of these biometrics modalities offer significant advantages over traditional biometrics such as fingerprint and retina scan for continuous authentication. Phoha holds 13 patents, eight of which are in behavior biometrics. His technology is licensed to major companies in biometrics. Part of SUNY Oswego's Science Today Lecture Series. Free; parking for those without a campus parking sticker is $1 -- see oswego.edu/administration/parking. 312-2762.
