Paper Abstract

Usually we accept it as a fact that one person's left and right hands are symmetric in some degree. But we don't know exactly how similar they are. In this paper, we designed an experiment to illustrate it in numbers that two palms from one person are more similar than two palms from two persons. This similarity may enable us to register on a palmprint verification system with one hand and go through the system with the other hand. We also designed another interesting experiment to tell that when doing personal verification by looking at the palmprint pictures, human beings cannot be 100 percent correct as we assumed before. Under certain circumstance, the machine can do a better job than a person.
