    Facial Expression Biometrics Using Statistical Shape Models

    This paper describes a novel method for representing different facial expressions based on the shape space vector (SSV) of the statistical shape model (SSM) built from 3D facial data. The method relies only on...

    Gait Recognition Using Wearable Motion Recording Sensors

    This paper presents an alternative approach, where gait is collected by the sensors attached to the person's body. Such wearable sensors record motion (e.g. acceleration) of the body parts during walking. The ...

    Talking-Face Identity Verification, Audiovisual Forgery, and Robustness Issues

    The robustness of a biometric identity verification (IV) system is best evaluated by monitoring its behavior under impostor attacks. Such attacks may include the transformation of one, many, or all of the biom...
