Biometric identification offers reliable solution to better security, higher efficiency, and, in many instances, increased user convenience. Consequently, biometrics-based personal identification systems are being widely used in every aspect of society including governmental, commercial and civilian sections.
This talk will give an overview of biometric identification technologies, especially handwriting based writer identification, signature recognition and verification. The lecture will discuss their strengths, weaknesses, usability, efficiency and tendency. I will give my opinions on these issues, as well as research works about Uyghur handwriting (similar to Arabic and Persian) based writer identification and signature recognition as a case study.
