ATM looking in the eye

1999/06/01 Elhuyar Zientzia Iturria: Elhuyar aldizkaria

A bank of the North American state of Texas, before donating money, has launched a system of ATMs capable of knowing the eyes of its customers. Therefore, users of this system, to perform their operations, will not have to learn codes or use cards, since the new machines are able to know the right eye of customers.

The clients of the entity must take the photo from the right eye in the bank. The image is saved on the computer. When the customer approaches operating at ATMs, the machine compares the customer's right eye to the saved image. If the images are the same, the machine will only allow you to perform the operation. Even if it seems a lie, the eye iriss, with its lines and colors, are more characteristic than fingerprints, since the iris has 226 characteristics that the machine can know and only 35 fingerprints.
