Book Description

"The Biometric Computing: Recognition & Registration" presents introduction of biometrics along with detailed analysis for identification and recognition methods. This book forms the required platform for understanding biometric computing and its implementation for securing target system. It also provides the comprehensive analysis on algorithms, architectures and interdisciplinary connection of biometric computing along with detailed case-studies for newborns and resolution spaces. The strength of this book is its unique approach starting with how biometric computing works to research paradigms and gradually moves towards its advancement. This book is divided into three parts that comprises basic fundamentals and definitions, algorithms and methodologies, and futuristic research and case studies.


  • A clear view to the fundamentals of Biometric Computing
  • Identification and recognition approach for different human characteristics
  • Different methodologies and algorithms for human identification using biometrics traits such as face, Iris, fingerprint, palm print, voiceprint etc.
  • Interdisciplinary connection of biometric computing with the fields like deep neural network, artificial intelligence, Internet of Biometric Things, low resolution face recognition etc.

This book is an edited volume by prominent invited researchers and practitioners around the globe in the field of biometrics, describes the fundamental and recent advancement in biometric recognition and registration. This book is a perfect research handbook for young practitioners who are intending to carry out their research in the field of Biometric Computing and will be used by industry professionals, graduate and researcher students in the field of computer science and engineering.
