IAPR 2019 Biometrics Lecture: Eye Movement Detection Sensors, Biometrics, and Health Assessment
The availability of eye movement detection sensors is set to explode, with billions of units available in future Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) platforms. In my talk I will discuss the past, present, and future of such sensors and their applications. I will discuss both the applications that initially necessitate the presence of such sensors in VR/AR devices, along with additional uses that would be enabled by those sensors such as eye movement driven biometrics and health assessment.
Dr. Komogortsev is currently a tenured Associate Professor at Texas State University. Dr. Komogortsev has received his B.S. in Applied Mathematics from Volgograd State University, Russia, and M.S./Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from Kent State University, Ohio. He has previously worked for such institutions as Johns Hopkins University, Notre Dame University, and Michigan State University. Dr. Komogortsev conducts research in eye tracking with a focus on cyber security (biometrics), human computer interaction, usability, bioengineering, and health assessment. This work has thus far yielded more than 100 peer reviewed publications and several patents. Dr. Komogortsev’s research was covered by the national media including NBC News, Discovery, Yahoo, Livesience and others. Dr. Komogortsev is a recipient of two Google Virtual Reality Research Awards and a Google Faculty Research Award. Dr. Komogortsev has also won National Science Foundation CAREER award and Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) on the topic of cybersecurity with the emphasis on eye movement-driven biometrics and health assessment. In addition, his research is supported by the National Institute of Standards, Sigma Xi the Scientific Research Society, and various industrial sources. Dr. Komogortsev’s current grand vision is to push forward eye tracking solutions in the future virtual and augmented reality platforms as enablers of more immersive experiences, security, and assessment of human state.
