Recognition types in biometricts

DNA Matching

Chemical Biometric The identification of an individual using the analysis of segments from DNA.

Ear

Visual Biometric The identification of an individual using the shape of the ear.

Eyes – Iris Recognition

Visual Biometric The use of the features found in the iris to identify an individual.

Eyes – Retina Recognition

Visual Biometric The use of patterns of veins in the back of the eye to accomplish recognition.

Face Recognition

Visual Biometric The analysis of facial features or patterns for the authentication or recognition of an individuals identity. Most face recognition systems either use eigenfaces or local feature analysis.

Fingerprint Recognition

Visual Biometric The use of the ridges and valleys (minutiae) found on the surface tips of a human finger to identify an individual.

Finger Geometry Recognition

Visual/Spatial Biometric The use of 3D geometry of the finger to determine identity.

Gait

Behavioural Biometric The use of an individuals walking style or gait to determine identity.

Hand Geometry Recognition

Visual/Spatial Biometric The use of the geometric features of the hand such as the lengths of fingers and the width of the hand to identify an individual.

Odour

Olfactory Biometric The use of an individuals odor to determine identity.

Signature Recognition

Visual/Behavioural Biometric The authentication of an individual by the analysis of handwriting style, in particular the signature. There are two key types of digital handwritten signature authentication, Static and Dynamic. Static is most often a visual comparison between one scanned signature and another scanned signature, or a scanned signature against an ink signature. Technology is available to check two scanned signatures using advances algorithms. Dynamic is becoming more popular as ceremony data is captured along with the X,Y,T and P Coordinates of the signor from the signing device. This data can be utilised in a court of law using digital forensic examination tools, and to create a biometric template from which dynamic signatures can be authenticated either at time of signing or post signing, and as triggers in workflow processes.

Kid with Learning Disability

The use of technology to enhance learning is an effective approach for many children. Assistive Technology (AD) for kids with Learning Disabilities (LD) is defined as any device, piece of equipment or system that helps bypass, work around or compensate for an individual’s specific learning deficits. Over the past decade, a number of studies have demonstrated the efficacy of AT for individuals with LD.

AT can increase a child’s self-reliance and sense of independence. Kids who struggle in school are often overly dependent on parents, siblings, friends and teachers for help with assignments. By using AT, kids can experience success with working independently.

A student who has difficulty writing can compose a school report by dictating it and having it converted to text by special software. A child who struggles with math can use a hand-held calculator to keep score while playing a game with a friend. And a teenager with dyslexia may benefit from AT that will read aloud his employer’s online training manual. There are AT tools to help students who struggle with:

Listening

Certain assistive technology (AT) tools can help people who have difficulty processing and remembering spoken language. Such devices can be used in various settings (e.g., a class lecture, or a meeting with multiple speakers).

Math

Assistive technology (AT) tools for math are designed to help people who struggle with computing, organizing, aligning, and copying math problems down on paper. With the help of visual and/or audio support, users can better set up and calculate basic math problems.

Organization and memory

Assistive technology (AT) tools can help a person plan, organize, and keep track of his calendar, schedule, task list, contact information, and miscellaneous notes. These tools allow him to manage, store, and retrieve such information with the help of special software and hand-held devices.

Reading

There is a wide range of assistive technology (AT) tools available to help individuals who struggle with reading. While each type of tool works a little differently, all of these tools help by presenting text as speech. These tools help facilitate decoding, reading fluency, and comprehension.

Writing

There is a wide range of assistive technology (AT) tools available to help students who struggle with writing. Some of these tools help students circumvent the actual physical task of writing, while others facilitate proper spelling, punctuation, grammar, word usage, and organization. There are other forms of technology designed to help all students, including those with LD, improve their academic performance. These technologies differ somewhat from AT but are worth mentioning. They are:

1. Instructional software, which is used to teach specific academic skills (like reading and writing) or subject matter content (such as history and science).

2. Universal design learning, which is a philosophy that encompasses learning models, methods and products to enhance the educational experience of diverse learners (whether or not they have learning disabilities).

If your child has a learning disability, he or she may benefit from assistive technology tools that play to their strengths and work around their challenges.
