Vahid Mirjalili

I am Vahid Mirjalili, a PhD student in Computer Science and Engineering department at Michigan State University.
My PhD research is in the area imparting privacy to biometric data at integrated pattern recognition and biometrics lab (iPRoBe), under my PhD advisor, Dr. Arun Ross.

I use Python as my main programing tool for research purposes. Furthermore, I have also co-authored a book Python Machine Learning, 2nd Ed. along with Sebastian Raschka.

Soft-biometric privacy in face images (IJCB2017)

While the primary purpose of biometric data such face images is for identity recognition, recent advances in machine learning has facilitated extracting auciliary information like age, gender, ethnicity, etc, which are called "soft-biometric attributes". However, automatic extraction of ...
