Introduction to Biometrics and Face Recognition
Face is one of the most investigated biometrics. It includes several advantages.
This biometric trait is used by humans themselves to recognize each others; there
is neither need of contact nor cooperation from the user. FR is a very dynamic
domain. Beyond classical face recognition from still images based on well established
techniques (e.g. PCA/LDA), numerous on-going R&D works exist around
face recognition. In this presentation, after an introduction on biometrics and in
particular face recognition, we will present and discuss some of the aforementioned
items illustrated by works performed at Eurecom Sophia Antipolis for
several years..
Jean-Luc Dugelay received his PhD in Information Technology from the University
of Rennes in 1992. He then joined EURECOM in Sophia Antipolis, where he is
now a Professor in the Department of Multimedia Communications. His current
work focuses in the domain of multimedia image processing, in particular activities
in security (image forensics, biometrics and video surveillance, mini drones),
and facial image processing. He has authored or co-authored over 300 publications
in journals and conference proceedings, 1 book on “3D Object Processing:
Compression, Indexing and Watermarking” by Wiley, 2008, 5 book chapters and
3 international patents. His research group is involved in several national projects
and European projects. Prof. Dugelay is a Fellow of the IEEE. He is currently the
Regional Director-at-Large of IEEE SP R8 (Europe, Middle East and Africa). He
is an elected member of the EURASIP Board of Governors. He is/was Associate
Editor of several international journals, such as IEEE Transactions on Image
Processing and IEEE Transactions on Multimedia; Founding Editor-in-Chief,
EURASIP Journal on Image and Video Processing (SpringerOpen); Member, SPS
Image, Video, and Multidimensional Signal Processing Technical Committee
(2002-07), SPS Multimedia Technical Committee (1999-2003 and 2005-08), and
SPS Information Forensics and Security Technical Committee (2010-12).
