Area 5 + 6 + 7 + 8


We show applications of convolutional neural networks to analyze human "imprints", ranging from personality traits to fingerprints.

You have passed all the technical pre-requisites to join "Impending Technologies", a very successful startup, this is your dream job. But wait, now you are asked to be fingerprinted and must go through personality tests to demonstrate "good character". You donate your fingerprint, then you are asked by a friendly avatar to present yourself for 15 seconds in front of a camera. You wait nervously for the outcome of your background check and the analysis of your personality traits. The friendly avatar lets you know that YES, you made it, you have been hired! Now you want to consult your personality trait analysis. We protect your privacy: to access it you must identify yourself with your fingerprint!
