Deep Learning is now synonymous with applied machine learning. Many technology giants (e.g. Google, Microsoft, Apple, IBM) as well as start-ups are focusing on deep learning-based techniques for data analytics and artificial intelligence. This technology applies quite strongly to biometrics. This book covers topics in deep learning, namely convolutional neural networks, deep belief network and stacked autoencoders. The focus is also on the application of these techniques to various biometric modalities: face, iris, palmprint, and fingerprints, while examining the future trends in deep learning and biometric research.
