From securing your smartphone and automatic photo tagging to enabling automatic border control and identifying criminals in forensics, the technology has far-reaching implications in our society.

The School is a tutorial-style 4-day intensive training workshop that discusses the latest biometrics techniques with application to 2D/3D face recognition. In addition, some fundamental Machine Learning concepts will also be covered, such as metric learning, Bayesian classifier based on Gaussian Mixture Model, and deep neural network. This intensive four-day programme will cater for the diverse background of the following targeted participants: engineers, graduate and post-graduate students, academicians, and technologists as well as new-comers to the field. All topics presented will have hands-on exercises.
