❶ The accelerated development of multi-modal hybrid biometric technology
Multi-modal hybrid recognition technology has better recognition performance than single biometric recognition technology, increases the difficulty of forging human biometrics, and greatly improves product safety. Multi-modal hybrid biometric technology is not a simple superposition of biometrics, but new algorithms are developed based on the characteristics of different biometrics to improve calculation efficiency and accuracy. This requires companies to have an in-depth understanding of different biometric technologies and be able to optimize and innovate products through algorithms. In the post-epidemic era, multi-modal hybrid biometrics using multiple biometric technologies for fusion applications will become more flexible. You can choose appropriate fusion methods and weighting decisions based on different application requirements and scene changes to become the biometrics market. Development trend.
Non-contact biometric technology mainly includes face recognition, palm vein recognition and iris recognition. With the development of technologies such as big data and artificial intelligence, face recognition has gradually matured in recognition accuracy. It is used in many scenarios such as access control and attendance recognition, real-name verification in banks, telecommunications, public security, and customs. Palm vein and finger vein recognition technology is currently mainly concentrated in the application of medium and small scenes such as ATM machines. With the development of wide dynamic image acquisition technology, palm vein recognition technology has also entered a growth stage, and its non-contact and concealment The characteristics of this can avoid the risk of information leakage. Iris technology has the characteristics of high accuracy and high difficulty in information collection, and is generally used in occasions with high security requirements. Due to its high accuracy rate, it is also suitable for unified and standardized identity authentication and identification at the national level.
