Science for Alaska Lecture, 'Protecting our Eye-dentity with New Methods for Information Security'

2012-06-07 by

What if your computer could recognize you without requiring a password? What if your computer could know that you are there and unlock itself for you (and could relock itself if you leave)?
What could happen if your computer knew what you were looking at on its monitor?

Although eye-tracking technologies have been around for 40 years, they are only just now becoming affordable and powerful enough to come to a computer near you.

In this presentation, UAA’s Kenrick Mock, associate professor of computer science, and Bogdan Hoanca, professor of management information systems, will introduce some of the many applications of eye tracking in marketing, psychology and graphic design, as well as new research on using eye-tracking for information security.

The Geophysical Institute, UAF and Alyeska Pipeline Service Co are sponsoring the lecture. This podcast was recorded on April 25, 2012 in Rasmuson Hall at UAA.
