#科技头条#【用“看名人图片”的脑电波可100%准确识别身份】近日宾汉姆顿大学的研究人员记录了50人戴着脑电图耳机时看到500张名人图片的反应,发现每个人的反应的脑电波都是独特的,这足以让计算机通过脑电波精准识别用户身份,研究人员表示这将是比指纹和密码更安全的识别系统。

Kim Kardashian's picture could replace your password: Researchers can identify people with 100% accuracy by monitoring brainwaves when they look at a celebrity

  • Team found our responses to certain stimuli are unique
  • Say foods, celebrities and words produce a 'brainprint' 

It could mean the end of the password and fingerprint.

Researchers have found that looking at certain stimuli, including a picture of a well known celebrity, creates a unique 'brainprint'.

They say it allows them to identify a person with 100% accuracy.

Researchers at Binghamton University, led by Assistant Professor of Psychology Sarah Laszlo and Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering Zhanpeng Jin, recorded the brain activity of 50 people wearing an electroencephalogram headset while they looked at a series of 500 images designed specifically to elicit unique responses from person to person -- e.g., a slice of pizza, a boat, Anne Hathaway, the word 'conundrum.'

They found that participants' brains reacted differently to each image, enough that a computer system was able to identify each volunteer's 'brainprint' with 100 percent accuracy.

'When you take hundreds of these images, where every person is going to feel differently about each individual one, then you can be really accurate in identifying which person it was who looked at them just by their brain activity,' said Laszlo.

The results suggest that brainwaves could be used by security systems to verify a person's identity, and be far safer than a fingerprint.

'If someone's fingerprint is stolen, that person can't just grow a new finger to replace the compromised fingerprint - the fingerprint for that person is compromised forever.

'Fingerprints are 'non-cancellable.'

Brainprints, on the other hand, are potentially cancellable.

So, in the unlikely event that attackers were actually able to steal a brainprint from an authorized user, the authorized user could then 'reset' their brainprint,' Laszlo said.

In their original study, titled 'Brainprint,' published in 2015 in Neurocomputing, the research team was able to identify one person out of a group of 32 by that person's responses, with only 97 percent accuracy, and that study only incorporated words, not images.

'It's a big deal going from 97 to 100 percent because we imagine the applications for this technology being for high-security situations, like ensuring the person going into the Pentagon or the nuclear launch bay is the right person,' said Laszlo.

'You don't want to be 97 percent accurate for that, you want to be 100 percent accurate.

Zhanpeng Jin, assistant professor at Binghamton University's departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Biomedical Engineering, doesn't see this as the kind of system that would be mass-produced for low security applications (at least in the near future) but it could have important security applications.

'We tend to see the applications of this system as being more along the lines of high-security physical locations, like the Pentagon or Air Force Labs, where there aren't that many users that are authorized to enter, and those users don't need to constantly be authorizing the way that a consumer might need to authorize into their phone or computer,' Jin said.

The study, 'CEREBRE: A Novel Method for Very High Accuracy Event-Related Potential Biometric Identification,' was published in The IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security.
