Brain Based Authentication - Melanie Segado, Sydney Swaine-Simon Cyphercon 2.0 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Brain Based Authentication
Melanie Segado, Sydney Swaine-Simon

Cyphercon 2.0

Brain based authentication is an emerging field that seeks to use brain signals as a form of biometric authentication. Due to the increased availability and decreased cost of portable electroencephalography (EEG) devices, which can record brain activity from the scalp surface, this technique has gained popularity in research and in the media. In this talk we will explain the science underlying brain based authentication, the advantages and limitations of this technique, and give a live demo of a brain based authentication prototype.

Sydney was born and raised in Montreal, Canada. He has a strong passion for technology, innovation and the human mind which led to him co-founding NeurotechX, an NPO whose goal is to educate and grow the field of Neurotechnology. Melanie really likes brains and computers. Melanie also cofounded NeuroTechX and acts as its Science Director. She is currently pursuing a PhD in cognitive neuroscience. Melanie spends her free time hacking on brain technology and thinking about its societal implications.
