Fingerprints are the most specific known characteristics of people
and are able to identify them uniquely over very large databases.
However the low quality of fingerprint data found for example at
the scene of a crime can challenge the ability of computer based
methods to exploit all the inherent information. Recent advances in
pattern recognition methods such as neural networks have led to
highly accurate automated systems which have found applications in
police, national registration, welfare and immigration systems.
The new technologies have also been applied to biometric
identification problems producing new. very low cost, accurate
readers for computer and physical access control.
