The Hummingbird Project  Human-Machine Integration for Biometric Identification

We live in a technological age in which we can use our voice as a password to access online banking, and our children can pay for school lunches with a fingerprint. Biometrics, which reflect our physiological or behavioural characteristics, are now common as a way to prove our identity in order to access secure information, services or spaces. Given the important uses associated with biometrics, there is a fundamental need for accuracy in biometric analysis in order to encourage trust amongst both citizens and service providers. The feasibility study undertaken within The Hummingbird Project will provide a human-inspired framework to address both needs.

We gratefully acknowledge funding support from the EPSRC (grant number EP/R030839/1).
