National security remedies among topics at surveillance confab
Date:8/28/2008

two UH students invited to the conference successfully did so and will present their papers, which also will be published in the proceedings.

Among them is Yan Zhou, a first-year Ph.D. student from the computer science department, who produced her first scholarly article only a few months after embarking on her studies. Her work makes fundamental improvements in tracking faces in thermal infrared imaging that is expected to find wide applicability in novel biometrics the measurement of physical characteristics and statistical study of biological phenomena for use in verifying an individual's identity. Her work specifically deals with the ability to identify and psychologically screen people at a distance based on physiological characteristics of the face. It is especially innovative in that her methods account for natural head motion, a challenge in this type of work.

Zhen Zhu, a senior Ph.D. student at UH, also made it through the review process to present his work on deception detection, funded by DACA, the Defense Academy on Credibility Assessment. DACA serves as the government's premiere educational center for polygraph and other credibility assessment technologies and techniques. It assists federal agencies in protecting U.S. citizens, interests, infrastructure and security by providing education and tools for credibility assessment.
