Functional connectome: map of coordinated brain regions (when performing a task etc.)
Approximately 30% of the functional connectome is unique to the individual and can be used to identify individuals (functional fingerprint) over many years or
distinguish their relatives from strangers.
Brain waves as the next step in biometric identification
“Wearable brain measurement is an application that’s just about to go mainstream, and you can infer a lot of information about users.”
Cybersecurity researcher from Texas Tech U takes two EEG-based authentication systems (Berkley and Binghamton-Buffalo adaptation) and trains them on old medical dataset of EEG scans from a group of
alcoholics. The machine learning classifier succeeds in picking up 25% of alcoholics in the sample.
