Human identity recognition is one of the key mechanisms of ensuring proper asset and information access to individuals. It became an established authentication practice for government, consumer, financial and recreational institutions in modern society. Biometrics are also increasingly used in a cybersecurity context to mitigate vulnerabilities and to ensure protection against an unauthorized access.
However, with the rise of the technological advancements, such as AI and deep learning, more and more capabilities exist to infer private information of individuals and to use aggregate data mining for commercial or other purposes. This lecture will discuss how deep learning methods can enhance biometric recognition accuracy in a variety of settings: unimodal and multi-modal systems, social behavioral biometrics, and risk assessment. The lecture will further focus on risks of privacy and ethical considerations, with discussing cancellability and de-identification as two of the mechanisms to mitigate the privacy concerns.
