On Semantic Soft-Biometric Labels
A new approach to soft biometrics aims to use human labelling as part of the process. This is consistent with analysis of surveillance video where people might be imaged at too low resolution or quality for conventional biometrics to be deployed. In this manner, people use anatomical descriptions of subjects to achieve recognition, rather than the usual measurements of personal characteristics used in biometrics. As such the labels need careful consideration in their construction, and should demonstrate correlation consistent with known human physiology. We describe our original process for generating these labels and analyse relationships between them. This gives insight into the perspicacity of using a human labelling system for biometric purposes.

Abstract

A new approach to soft biometrics aims to use human labelling as part of the process. This is consistent with analysis of surveillance video where people might be imaged at too low resolution or quality for conventional biometrics to be deployed. In this manner, people use anatomical descriptions of subjects to achieve recognition, rather than the usual measurements of personal characteristics used in biometrics. As such the labels need careful consideration in their construction, and should demonstrate correlation consistent with known human physiology. We describe our original process for generating these labels and analyse relationships between them. This gives insight into the perspicacity of using a human labelling system for biometric purposes.
