Identity competition to track eye movement

A competition investigating the use of eye movements for biometric verification and identification has been launched.

The official competition is being organised with the intention to publish the results during BTAS 2012 (The Fifth IEEE International Conference on Biometrics: Theory, Applications and Systems) in September.

The aim of the contest is to determine how people may be identified based on their eye movement characteristic. The organizers will provide all interested participants datasets of eye movement recordings. After downloading the datasets, participants may analyze it to prepare their own classification models to classify (identify) unknown samples.

The organiser was keen to point out that to become a participant you "don't need to have any special eye tracking equipment".
