A center for biometric excellence
As part of Idiap Research Institute, the Swiss Center for Biometrics Research and Testing is a center for biometric excellence established to advance biometric security technologies, mainly by facilitating collaboration between industry and academia. Its core missions are:
- to carry out high quality research
- to train talented engineers and researchers
- to foster technology transfer from academia to industry
- to propose evaluation and testing services in the domain of biometric security.
Being split between partners (active researchers) and affiliates (industry partners), the center ensures an environment of mutual benefit. While the partners create research proposals for funding consideration according to the affiliates' needs, the affiliates fund and drive the research carried out among the partners.
This structure helps industry partners to gain unparalleled access to cutting-edge researchers and their expertise and supports researchers to acquire the opportunity to bid for funding from driven and relevant organisations. Through this multidisciplinary environment, it is expected that organisations will enjoy a golden age of biometric development, leading to rapid improvements in current biometric technology and the realization of novel technologies.
The Swiss Center for Biometrics Research and Testing is supported by:
BTAS 2016 Speaker Anti-spoofing Competition
Propose countermeasure to protect an automatic speaker verification against spoofing attacks.
The Swiss Centre for Biometrics Research and Testing and the Biometric group at Idiap Research Institute organize the Speaker Anti-spoofing competition. The competition will be part of the IEEE 8th International Conference on Biometrics: Theory, Applications, and Systems (BTAS 2016), which will be held on September 6-9, 2016 in Niagara Falls, Buffalo, New York (USA).
