Mathematics Seminar

Description:

Michael Fowler, Marist '09, currently of Clarkson University will speak on "An Introduction to Biometrics".

Abstract
Biometrics is the field of study in which humans are identified by their characteristics or traits. With recent advances in information technology, biometric systems have become both more sophisticated and more affordable. These systems have since leapt off of movie screens and into the real world as voice, facial, and retina identification systems are now widely practical. In this talk I will discuss current use and recent developments in biometrics. Specifically, I will discuss how one extracts unique speaker features from a measured sound signal as well as pattern recognition and dimension reduction techniques that allow us to distinguish between speakers.

Refreshments will be served.
