Title: Electroencephalogram based biometric systems: issues and challenges


Biometric have emerged in the last decade as a convenient way to securely recognize people. However, in the last few years, an always growing interest towards the use of biological signals like electroencephalogram, electrodermal response, electrocardiogram, electromyogram, to be used as biometric identifiers, is being witnessed. Specifically, in this talk, we will infer about the use of electroencephalogram (EEG) as a novel biometric identifier which brings us to a paradigm shift within the biometric field. In fact while conventional biometric rely on the use of either physiological (e.g. face, iris, fingerprint, …) or behavioral (e.g. signature, gait, …) characteristics, that is on some biological characteristics the individual “possesses’ or on the “way the individual behaves” respectively, EEG biometric systems are based on the measurement of signals directly or indirectly generated by the “way the individual thinks” as a distinctive characteristic for automatic user recognition. In this talk, we will highlight the pros and cons of using EEG as a biometric identifier wrt “conventional” biometrics and the issues and challenges to be faced by researchers to bring EEG based biometric systems to deployment in real life applications will be analyzed.

Colloquium coordinators are Prof.dr. M. Aiello (e-mail : ) and Prof.dr. M. Biehl (e-mail: )
