Biometric System and Data Analysis

Design, Evaluation, and Data Mining

Authors: Dunstone, Ted, Yager, Neil

  • First book that focuses on the aspects common to all biometric recognition systems, including the input data (biometrics images, and person meta data) and output (scores) of these systems. This leads to a focus on user and group level performance
  • Evaluation techniques are accompanied by intuitive explanations
  • Case studies and examples from several major biometric modalities are included

About this book

Biometric  System and Data Analysis: Design, Evaluation, and Data Mining brings together aspects of statistics and machine learning to provide a comprehensive guide to evaluate, interpret and understand biometric data. This professional book naturally leads to topics including data mining and prediction, widely applied to other fields but not rigorously to biometrics.

This volume places an emphasis on the various performance measures available for biometric systems, what they mean, and when they should and should not be applied. The evaluation techniques are presented rigorously, however are always accompanied by intuitive explanations that convey the essence of the statistical concepts in a general manner.

Designed for a professional audience composed of practitioners and researchers in industry, Biometric  System and Data Analysis: Design, Evaluation, and Data Mining is also suitable as a reference for advanced-level students in computer science and engineering.

 

Reviews

From the reviews: “This book brings together a discussion on biometric systems, statistics, and machine learning. Its aim is to help us understand biometric data, measurements of such systems, and the ability to interpret them is highly desirable. … The book suits the needs of many practitioners, those involved with data in all its forms, and also would make useful reading for those who are studying systems, cybernetics, and management in the many and varied courses now being made available worldwide.” (W. R. Howard, Kybernetes, Vol. 38 (9), 2009)
