3rd Annual Biometrics for National Security and Defense


Published on

"Biometrics for national security and defense has come a long way in the last few years with leaps of new technological innovation, but more advancements in multi-modal and ruggedized equipment are still needed to improve database accuracy. Additionally, there is a great demand for advanced biometric solutions by the White House, DoD, and DHS initiatives such as HSPD 24, HSPD 12, and US-VISIT.

IDGA’s 3rd Annual Biometrics for National Security and Defense is your opportunity to meet with key decision-makers and technology experts on what the government’s next steps are in securing our warfighters, our government employees, and our homeland for the years to come.

With the advent of high-resolution digital healthy and active Kim Jong-Il. Shortly after their release the BBC claimed that the cameras, powerful personal computers and sophisticated photo-editing photographs were doctored. The article pointed to purported visual incongruities software, the manipulation of digital images is becoming more common. which were claimed to be the result of photo tampering. The BBC was wrong. We are seeing the impact of these technologies in nearly every corner of our lives. As the technology that allows for digital media to be manipulated and Because judgments of photo authenticity are often made by eye, we wondered distorted is developing at break-neck speeds, our understanding of the how reliable the human visual system is in detecting discrepancies that might arise technological, ethical, and legal implications is lagging behind. This session from photo tampering. This discussion will describe three experiments that show will discuss some of these issues and describe computational techniques that the human visual is remarkably inept at detecting simple geometric which have been developed for detecting tampering in digital media. inconsistencies in shadows, reflections, and planar perspective distortions. It will also describe computational methods that can be applied to detect the inconsistencies that seem to elude the human visual system. Session Leader: Dr. Hany Farid, William H.
