Adaptability and advanced services for ambient intelligence and smart living
require an intelligent technological support for knowing the needs and the
desires of users in the interactions with the environment for their daily use.
To this purpose in some cases we can discover these characteristics by
observing the human behavior, while in others we can retrieve stored
information associated to the person. In both cases, the use of biometrics can
be extremely useful both to understand the human behavior and to identify the
person or the class of persons with similar characteristics so as to derive
their needs and desires.
Biometric technologies allow us in fact for analyzing human traits (e.g.,
face, fingerprint, palm) for identity management without requiring individuals
to carry tokens or remembering information. These technologies allow us also
for classifying the persons by observing some soft-biometric traits (e.g.,
gait, height, weight, emotions), thus associating the needs typical of the
detected class. Besides, some other soft-biometric traits (e.g., gestures,
gait) allow us for specifying actions desired by the person.
This talk will analyze the opportunities offered by biometric technologies and
applications to support the realization of adaptable operations and
intelligent services in ambient intelligence for smart living, based on a
user-centric philosophy.
