Biometrics Uncensored: a seminar for students and educators

September 30, 2014 - 

The Biometrics Institute in partnership with Elsevier, have put together a one hour seminar for students and educators which will explore the way biometrics are used in everyday society. This seminar, designed for students aged 12-15, is part of the Biometrics 2014 exhibition and conference.

The Biometrics Uncensored seminar will challenge children to think about the role biometrics has now and in the future, addressing many questions and topics, including what is biometrics, who knows what, and what does that mean for you? The session will also feature interactive elements, including “biometrics and catching the criminals” and “sci-fi stuff, fingerprints, passwords and imprints”.

Seminar leaders include Dr. Ted Dunstone, Biometix Australia & head of BVAEG at the Biometrics Institute; Dr. Sandra Leaton Gray, Institute of Education & member of privacy expert group at the Biometrics Institute; and Professor Liesbet Van Zoonen, research coordinator at Loughborough University.

The Biometrics Uncensored seminar is now open for registration and limited to 50 participants. Get more information here.
