Academy Research funding to Adj. Prof. Abdenour Hadid

Adj. Prof. Abdenour Hadid has received follow-on funding for research costs related to his Academy Research Fellow project titled “Texture Based Techniques for Robust Face Biometrics”. The funding sum from the Academy of Finland is 140 000 euros and covers the period 01.09.2016 – 31.08.2018.

The project, started in September 2013, deals with texture based techniques for robust face biometrics. The main objective is to demonstrate that many of the current challenges in face biometric research can actually be formulated as texture analysis problems which can be approached and eventually solved using the recent developments in the fields of static/dynamic texture analysis and machine learning.
