Here at the department of computer science we have an established reputation for research and one area where engineers have been particularly successful is in developing complex algorithms to significantly improve the accuracy and efficiency of biometric identification systems. So ground breaking were the ideas that in 2004, the group behind this patented technology took the ambitious step to ‘spin out’ their ideas in order to capitalize on its commercial potential.
