Paper Abstract

This paper investigates the performance improvement for palmprint authentication using multiple classifiers. The proposed methods on personal authentication using palmprints can be divided into three categories; appearance- , line -, and texture-based. A combination of these approaches can be used to achieve higher performance. We propose to simultaneously extract palmprint features from PCA, Line detectors and Gabor-filters and combine their corresponding matching scores. This paper also investigates the comparative performance of simple combination rules and the hybrid fusion strategy to achieve performance improvement. Our experimental results on the database of 100 users demonstrate the usefulness of such approach over those based on individual classifiers.
