Ageing-Adaptive Face Recognition

Research Group: Image and Information Engineering [1]

Number of Awards Available: 1

Award Description:
The studentship will be provided for a period of three years at the standard EPSRC rate which covers tuition fees and includes a non-taxable subsistence allowance of approximately £13,000 per annum with a budget for IT equipment, books. Software and travel to conferences and project meetings.

Project Details: Face recognition is now an important tool in key applications such as border control and forensic investigations. This project is concerned with developing new technologies for automatic recognition of people using their facial images when there may be a large time difference between the images that are compared. Human ageing significantly affects the performance of face recognition systems in these crucial application domains. The proposed research aims to develop a thorough understanding of the impact of the human aging process on the performance of face recognition systems and through this understanding develop systems and strategies for management of biometric information to ensure universal access to cost-effective biometrics-enabled authentication and forensic services.

Requirements: Candidates should have, or are expecting to obtain in the near future, a First Class or good 2.1 Honours Degree in Electronic Engineering, Computer Science or a related discipline. An appropriate degree at Masters level will be an advantage.

Closing Date for Applications: 02/07/2010 00:00:00
