Biometric Courses

  1. 1. Biometric Technology Courses at Purdue Success in the classroom<br />Biometric Standards, Performance, and Assurance Laboratory | <br />Purdue University<br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
  2. 2. Presentation Overview<br />Courses in Biometrics at Purdue University<br />Course modules<br />Introduction to the learning management system<br />Pre-tests<br />Assignments and Assessments<br />Hotseat<br />Signals<br />Contact information<br />
  3. 3. Graduate Courses<br />
  4. 4. AIDC for the Enterprise<br />Graduate level course in Automatic Identification Technologies<br />Bar codes<br />Biometrics<br />RFID<br />Card technologies<br />
  5. 5. ICT Standards<br />1 credit course <br />Repeatable 3 times<br />Follows work in INCITS M1 and ISO/IEC JTC 1 SC37<br />Provides opportunities for students to provide technical comments<br />Closely linked to biometric standards work<br />
  6. 6. IT 55500 Biometric Technology Test Design, Performance, and Evaluation<br />An introduction of methods of designing biometric testing, performance, and evaluation analyses. <br />Methods of evaluating fingerprint, face, iris, and voice recognition data is explored using ROC curves, CMC, Rank statistics, and DET curves.<br />Examines testing requirements from submission of IRB documents to the final analysis.<br />Includes a component of comparative analysis within modalities.<br />
  7. 7. IT 54000 Biometric Performance and Usability Analysis <br />An introduction of test methodologies from disciplines outside of biometrics, which include:  <br />usability, <br />ergonomics, <br />human factors, <br />human-computer interaction, <br />Demonstrate how biometric data analysis can benefit from understanding how humans interact with biometric sensors during the testing and evaluation of biometric systems. <br />Explores test methods, case studies, and prior biometric testing reports in order to develop a test methodology that includes information on how users interact with biometric systems. <br />
  8. 8. IT 65700 Fingerprint Performance and Usability <br />Covers topics of fingerprint capture, fingerprint feature extraction, fingerprint matching, and attacks on fingerprint systems. <br />Requires analysis of real fingerprint data and the integration of fingerprint recognition in existing infrastructures.<br />Development of a fingerprint recognition system is required. <br />
  9. 9. IT 65800 Biometric Systems Interoperability: Applications and Challenges <br />Provides a technology neutral approach to the discussion of biometric system interoperability. <br />Examines the issues of biometric sub-systems of different biometric modalities and sub-systems of the general biometric model. <br />Students will be able to critically evaluate the impact of interoperability of sub-systems on the performance of the entire system. <br />
  10. 10. IT 54500 Biometric Technology and Applications<br />Foundation course<br />Six modules cover the IEEE CBP Body of Knowledge<br />Biometric Fundamentals<br />Biometric Modalities<br />Biometric System Design and Evaluation<br />Biometric Standards<br />Social, Cultural and Legal Implications<br />Biometric Applications<br />
