About Short Term Course & Winter School

The short term course on Advances in Biometrics is intended to provide an advanced level understanding of Machine Learning and Deep Learning based methods being developed and used for effective biometrics recognition using various modalities, i.e. Face, Iris, Retina, Hand & Palm, etc. The course will also uncover the problem of deliberate occlusion under covid like scenarios where biometric recognition is necessary with forcing the subjects to remove the face masks and maintaining the ease of collectability of the facial biometric. Few lectures and hands-on shall be dedicated to such algorithms and methods. The course will also cover topics that are very appropriate under low light or no light biometric recognition which is primarily the concern in surveillance applications. So the course will provide some theoretical as well as hands-on exposure to Thermal and Infrared facial biometric recognition. So overall the course will consist of 15 lectures each of 50 minutes followed by questions and discussions for 10 minutes. The course will also conduct 5 hands-on sessions of 1 hour each. The hands-on shall be conducted using online platforms like Google Colab.

Topics To Be Covered

  • Basics of Biometrics, Chronological Development
  • Facial Occlusion in Recognition, Occlusion Removal and Face Reconstruction
  • Periocular Biometrics
  • Low-Light or No-Light in Facial Biometrics
  • Thermal/NIR Face Recognition
  • Thermal/NIR to Visible Biometric Image Translation
  • Advanced Biometrics, Anti-spoofing, Deep Learning in Biometrics, Etc.

Special Activities

  1. The objective topic-wise assessment of the course is proposed and the participants and opt for the assessment voluntarily. The top-5 scorers shall be awarded the certificate of excellence and some cash prize.
  2. Two general research problems shall be floated among the participants and proposed solutions ideas shall be invited. These will be judged and the best Ideas shall be provided with cash prizes and certificates.

About Location - IIIT Allahabad

The Indian Institute of Information Technology Allahabad (IIIT-A) was established in 1999, as a centre of excellence in Information Technology and allied areas. The institute was conferred the “Deemed University” status by Govt. of India in the year 2000. Later in 2014 it has been declared as an Institute of National Importance by the Act of the Parliament, Govt. of India. The Institute has been conceived with the ambitious objectives of developing professional expertise and skilled manpower in Information Technology (IT) and allied. As an apex nucleating institute in the area of IT, the establishment of IIIT-A, is a major step of Govt. of India towards strengthening the indigenous capability necessary for exploiting profitably and harnessing multi-dimensional facets of IT at all levels, and attaining expertise to enable the country to emerge as a leading player in the global arena.
