Machine learning for biometric identification
Biometric identification aims to recognize people's identity through the use of signals or images from which one can extract features that are distinctive to each person. This PhD project will focus on identification on the basis of biometric information that can be captured through a single camera or a simple wearable sensor. Possible target applications are recognition using behavioral information, recognition using mobile phones, or continuous person identification for wearable devices. Candidates for this project should have some fundamental knowldge on signal/image processing. Prior programming experience is highly desirable.
This is a self funded project
Brunel offers a number of funding options to research students that help cover the cost of their tuition fees, contribute to living expenses or both. See more information here: https://www.brunel.ac.uk/research/Research-degrees/Research-degree-funding. Recently the UK Government made available the Doctoral Student Loans of up to £25,000 for UK and EU students and there is some funding available through the Research Councils. Many of our international students benefit from funding provided by their governments or employers. Brunel alumni enjoy tuition fee discounts of 15%.)
