Klemen Grm, a junior researcher at the Laboratory for Machine Intelligence, has been nominated for the prestigious European Biometrics Research and Industry Award held by European Association for Biometrics The awards are awarded annually to identify innovations in biometrics in both academic and industrial settings and encourage scientific progress in the area.
Klemen Grm is active in the research areas of facial biometrics and super-resolution. Super-resolution techniques can be used to enhance the quality of face images, which has several biometric applications. Researchers suggest that such methods could eventually lead to improved face recognition for surveillance platforms.
The three nominated finalists will present their work at the Fraunhofer IGD, Germany on 18. September, 2019, where the final winner will be chosen.
