(vishal patel) "as they walk it's being captured" all professor vishal patel did was ask a student to walk across campus at rutger's university then hand his phone to another student, who walked back. (brook)"but that little difference in how they walk is enough." (patel)"is enough to identify who the person is walking." to the phone's accelorameter- every smartphone has one-the walking looked like this (vishal patel) "you had two different people walking in the same path but as you can see their signatures are very different." researchers like patel are trying to use biometrics to make our devices more secure (brook) "ok so when i try to use the phone the camera is already looking at me" with a process called "active authentication" that constantly, passively monitors the user. (bsb) "and it's locked ." the phone was also trained- incredibly-to recognize the unique way its owner scrolls down the screen (vishal patel) and then if he were to switch the phone, lets say you want to try using his phone bsb: so if i swipe it's going to be able to tell if someone else scrolling vp: someone else is scrolling yes vp: so now you swipe, there you go in two swipes. bsb: that's amazing, after two swipes vp: yeah, after two swipes. so why isn't this active authentication active yet? it could drain our batteries, or fail to work in certain settings - for example the camera can't see you in the dark and some of the methods, like tracking our pattern of life, could turn off users. (vishal patel) once you have this information you can sort of learn where the person will end up in the afternoon or at night. bsb: to a lot of people this is just going to look creepy vp: that's right, it is creepy, but it is very powerful "i believe it's inevitable" joseph atick helped invent facial recognition technology 25 years ago but today, he says tracking users is so valuable to marketers that tech companies can't be trusted to self-regulate their use of bio-metrics. (joseph atick) "what guarantees me someone isn't using my bio metric data to do surveillance on me?" bryan 'brook silva-braga' reporting. researchers believe bio-metric data could start replacing our passwords in the next few years. lauren
