Technology to verify age using fingerprint images. by Spivak
Child internet safety has been becoming one of the major concerns in the modern information age. Currently, desptite the all efforts, working age verification solutions are either complex and expensive in implementation, or just ineffective. Moreover, many researchers believe there can not be reliable technology to determine age using biometric features, whether these are fingerprints, palm vein patterns or voice. Yet, age verification remains to be one of the most perspective technologies, inline with blockchains, voice and image recognition or artificial intelligence. After few years of work and testing, I announce creation of algorithm to verify age using fingerprints; current accuracy is 75% for age 14+ and 90% for 6-12 years.
The technology, in essence, is mathematical algorithm, elaborated on the base of researches of Ukrainian and Russian forensic experts. I created it, working on patented method of biometric password generation.
