    A wide variety of systems requires reliable personal recognition schemes to either confirm or determine the identity of an individual requesting their services. The purpose of such schemes is to ensure that the rendered services are accessed only by a legitimate user and no one else. Examples of such applications include secure access to buildings, computer systems, laptops, cellular phones, and A... View full abstract»

  • How iris recognition works

    Algorithms developed by the author for recognizing persons by their iris patterns have now been tested in many field and laboratory trials, producing no false matches in several million comparison tests. The recognition principle is the failure of a test of statistical independence on iris phase structure encoded by multi-scale quadrature wavelets. The combinatorial complexity of this phase inform...

  • Robust multipose face detection in images

    Automatic human face detection from images in surveillance and biometric applications is a challenging task due to variations in image background, view, illumination, articulation, and facial expression. We propose a novel three-step face detection approach to addressing this problem. The approach adopts a simple-to-complex strategy. First, a linear-filtering algorithm is applied to enhance detect...

    This work is a continuation and extension of our previous research where kernel Fisher discriminant analysis (KFDA), a combination of the kernel trick with Fisher linear discriminant analysis (FLDA), was introduced to represent facial features for face recognition. This work makes three main contributions to further improving the performance of KFDA. First, a new kernel function, called the cosine... View full abstract»

    Automatic retrieval of face images from police mug-shot databases is critically important for law enforcement agencies. It can effectively help investigators to locate or narrow down potential suspects. However, in many cases, a photo image of a suspect is not available and the best substitute is often a sketch drawing based on the recollection of an eyewitness. We present a novel photo retrieval ... View full abstract»

  • Dynamic behavior analysis in compressed fingerprint videos

    Traditional fingerprint acquisition is limited to single-image capture and processing. With the advent of faster capture hardware, faster processors, and advances in video compression standards, newer systems can capture and exploit video signals for tasks that are difficult using a single image. We propose the use of fingerprint video sequences to investigate detecting two aspects of the dynamic ... View full abstract»

  • Directional filter bank-based fingerprint feature extraction and matching

    The paper presents a new filter bank-based fingerprint feature extraction and matching method without needing to detect minutiae. The proposed method decomposes a fingerprint image into eight directional subband outputs using a directional filter bank (DFB) and then obtains directional energy distributions for each block from the decomposed subband outputs. Only dominant directional energy compone... View full abstract»

  • Likelihood-ratio-based biometric verification

    The paper presents results on optimal similarity measures for biometric verification based on fixed-length feature vectors. First, we show that the verification of a single user is equivalent to the detection problem, which implies that, for single-user verification, the likelihood ratio is optimal. Second, we show that, under some general conditions, decisions based on posterior probabilities and... View full abstract»

  • Fast fingerprint verification using subregions of fingerprint images

    We propose a fast fingerprint matching methodology based on localizing the matching regions in captured fingerprint images. The determination of the locations of such regions relies on the accurate detection of reference points in the images together with a priori knowledge of the complete fingerprint obtained during the fingerprint enrollment procedure. The relationship between authentication rel... View full abstract»

  • Bayesian shape localization for face recognition using global and local textures

    We present a fully automatic system for face recognition in databases, with only a small number of samples (even a single sample) for each individual. The shape localization problem is formulated in the Bayesian framework. In the learning stage, the RankBoost approach is introduced to model the likelihood of local features associated with the fiducial point, while preserving the prior ranking orde...

  • An adaptive postprocessing technique for the reduction of color bleeding in DCT-coded images

    We propose a new postprocessing technique developed specifically for the reduction of color bleeding in DCT-coded color images. The proposed algorithm, based on a complete analysis of this particular kind of distortion, is used to identify and reduce color bleeding artifacts while attempting to preserve the sharpness of the reconstructed images. Simulation results show that the method successfully... View full abstract»

  • An enhanced two-stage multiple description video coder with drift reduction

    Multiple description coding (MDC) is a source coding technique that exploits path diversity to increase the robustness of transmitting a compressed signal over error-prone channels. However, the application of MDC to video coding is still problematic because a prediction mismatch problem, called drift, may occur at the decoder when one description is lost. In the literature, it has been shown that... View full abstract»

    A joint probabilistic face detection and tracking algorithm, combining likelihood estimation and a prior probability, is proposed. The likelihood estimation scheme is based on the statistical training of sets of automatically generated feature points and a mutual information tracking cue, while the prior probability estimation is based on a Gaussian temporal model. The likelihood estimation proces... View full abstract»

    It is shown that, by choosing appropriate values for the parameter a of the generating kernel in constructing P.J. Burt and E.H. Adelson's pyramid for motion estimation (see IEEE Trans. Commun., vol.31, p.337-45, 1983), one can eliminate the operation of the floating point multiplications needed in such a construction and reduce the computational load to the same order as in the case of the mean p...
