Overview of the Proposed Course

The main motivation behind the use of biometrics is to provide a convenient mechanism for person authentication with the help of biological or behavioural characteristics and to eliminate the use of much inconvenient ways of authentication such as the ones which are based on ID card, password, physical keys, PINs etc. Recent biometric recognition techniques use deep learning for performing various tasks such as data pre-processing, feature extraction, feature selection, pattern classification, clustering, and so on. Methods and applications of deep learning in biometrics have seen tremendous advances in recent years. This course will provide an excellent opportunity to stu-dents, researchers and practitioners to learn deep learning techniques for biometric recognition.

Learning Objectives

1. Deep learning is the upcoming field and techniques based on deep learning have shown its applicability in various domains. This course will expose participants to deep learning techniques particularly useful for biometric applications and provide them an excellent opportunity to make themselves well verse with these techniques.
2. It will provide participants an opportunity to learn basic as well as advance topics of Deep Learning used in biometrics.
3. The course will deal with both theoretical and practi-cal aspects of deep learning techniques for biometrics.

Resource Persons

1. Dr. Surya Prakash, Associate Professor (CSE, IIT Indore)
2. Dr. Somnath Dey, Associate Professor (CSE, IIT Indore)
3. Dr. Puneet Gupta, Assistant Professor (CSE, IIT Indore)
4. Dr. Vivek Kanhangad, Associate Professor (EE, IIT Indore)

Tentative schedule

The course comprises of lectures and a few lecture-cum-lab sessions to provide hands-on experience to the participants. All the sessions will be tentatively scheduled between 9:00am and 6:00pm. The lectures or lecture-cum-lab sessions of the course may be scheduled in the morning or evening depending upon the requirement and availability of the experts. Each session will be of 1 hour duration. Feedback and experience sharing session will be conducted on the last day.

Tentative Topics to be Covered in the Course

  1. Basics of Biometrics
  2. Basics of Deep Learning
  3. Introduction to Python, Google Colaboratory, NumPy, Matplotlib, and other relevant libraries
  4. Introduction to TensorFlow, Keras and PyTorch
  5. Deep Learning for various Biometrics
  6. Deep Learning for 2D/3D Face Biometrics
  7. Deep Learning 2D/3D Ear Biometrics
  8. Deep Learning for Fingerprint Recognition
  9. Adversarial Attacks on Biometric Systems
  10. Face Anti-spoofing using rPPG
  11. Face Micro-expression Analysis using rPPG
These topics are tentative and addition/deletion is possible depending upon the availability of the experts.
