Master Thesis Proposal: Advancing metric-similarity learning
Biometrics is a rapidly growing technology that aims to identify or verify people identities based on their physical or behavioral properties. Machine learning approaches are the backbone of biometric recognition systems especially with approaches based on deep learning networks. This work aims at analyzing state of the art similarity learning approaches to propose a novel approach that addresses the disadvantages of previously proposed solutions.
Was Sie mitbringen
- Interest in computer vision and machine learning
Informatics, electrical engineering, mathematics, physics.Was Sie erwarten können
This work will analyze existing similarity learning approaches in biometrics. A number of experiments (more than one biometric source) should be designed and implemented to evaluate the baseline state of the art similarity learning approaches. The achieved results should be analyzed and lead to new proposed similarity learning approach. Final evaluation and results should lead to in depth analyses and discussion on the topic.Key literature:
