Jessica Tucker Mission Statement To create a more efficient way to link new mothers and fathers with their newborn babies by using biometrics
Security Procedures To keep you and your child safe we employ very select and specific modes of biometrics to help protect and ward off anyone who has no right to your child/children. First you must pass a DNA verification. Then you must be cleared by a facial scan. If you are recognized by the data base you then have to go through a vocal test. Upon being recognized by all three test you then are allowed access to your child.
Situation A hospital interested in a better way to link new mothers and fathers with their newborn babies. Surface Texture Analysis or
Facial recognition A picture is taken of a patch of skin, called a skinprint. That patch is then broken up into smaller blocks. Using algorithms to turn the patch into a mathematical, measurable space, the system will then distinguish any lines, pores and the actual skin texture. It can identify differences between identical twins, which is not yet possible using facial recognition software alone. We currently uses three different templates to confirm or identify the subject: vector, local feature analysis and surface texture analysis.
•The vector template is very small and is used for rapid searching over the entire database primarily for one-to-many searching.
•The local feature analysis (LFA) template performs a secondary search of ordered matches following the vector template.
•The surface texture analysis (STA) is the largest of the three. It performs a final pass after the LFA template search, relying on the skin features in the image, which contains the most detailed information. DNA verification DNA recognition ivolves taking DNA from the parents, through spit, hair, or skin, store it, and use it as something to run future tests against. If requested we will also take a sample from the child and use that as an extra set of verification. DNA recognition uses the order of your nitrogen bases, Which is unique to everyone, except identical twins, to identify someone. Unless someone is your identical twin or they steal your DNA it is impossible for someone else to pass this test. Vocal recognition Vocal recognition uses sophisticated software that analyzes your speech. You first sing a scale so the computer has something to go by. You then either sing or speak a simple sentence. Not only is this sentence known only by you replicating your voice is virtually impossible. If someone were to record your voice it would still not be the same. Small static frequencies that electronics emit would be picked up and would be rejected. Even professional vocal copiest have small variations whether in emphasis of certain sounds or the gaps in speech make this test fool proof. Cites http://pcworld.about.com/news/May182005id120889.htm
Success Story "I recently just had a new born baby girl and these new added biometric technologies have helped me with the baby impostures. I heard about this male who tried to dress up as a neonatal nurse, but with the protection of their biometric additions he failed the test, Keeping my baby safe."
