16:00 – 17:30 CET

Link to online seminars: Zoom


Applications, services, and devices using biometric systems are continuously growing in innovative applications and solutions such as classical and cyber security, smart phones, and ambient intelligence infrastructures. Biometric systems are designed not just for identity recognition, but they can also be extremely useful to profile users and to understand the human behavior. The talk presents biometric systems focusing on the security and privacy aspects of their application.
