Work in Biometrics

Dr. Anil Jain

Professor in the Department of Computer Science & Engineering

Biometrics, the science of identifying individuals based on physical traits, represents a world market of over $10B. Once limited to fingerprints and composite sketches, the field is now on the cutting edge of digital technology. Jain’s research advances rapid facial and fingerprint recognition, to foil ever-advancing attempts to avoid detection. Results address challenges in terrorism, crime, and securing sensitive digital records. Dr. Jain’s work not only represents continued advancement in the realm of biometrics, but also serves as a critical rebuttal to the methods employed by criminals to thwart established biometric identification practices.

MSU Technologies is pleased to recognize Dr. Jain and his team for their research and innovations.
