MSU CSE Colloquium Series 2016-2017: Dr. Oleg Komogortsev Eye movements and their use in cybersecurity, health assessment, and other applications

Dr. Oleg Komogortsev
Associate Professor
Texas State University

Date: Friday, February 24, 2017
Time: 10:15 AM - 11:15 AM
Location: EB 3105

The talk will discuss eye movements, their characteristics, and Oculomotor Plant (eye globe and its muscles) mathematical model of the eye that allows person recognition, spoofing protection, and health assessment together with other metrics extracted from the eye movement signal. The talk will also present how eye movements allow novel applications and solutions to the existing challenges in the Human Computer Interaction domain.
