Open Biometrics


Open Biometrics is a project by Marc Bohlen that began in 2002, but I'm just now finding out about it... from the website: "The Open Biometrics Initiative challenges hard and fast classification of biometric data. Numerous government and private agencies are working towards large-scale biometric identification systems. Visitors to the United States are now routinely finger-scanned at border crossings. In the near future, no official government document will be issued without a fingerprint or an eye-scan. But are you really who they think you are? The Open Biometrics Initiative cracks open the clean fabrication of automated biometric identification at its root. The machine calculates and prints characteristic points together with their coordinates, type code (ridge ending or bifurcation) and color-coded likelihood as a probabilistic IDcard for your reference."
