Cybersecurity Seminar Talk
Dr. Oleg Komogortsev, Michigan State University
Video Recording:

Abstract: The talk will discuss eye movements, their characteristics, and Oculomotor Plant (eye globe and its muscles) mathematical model of the eye that allows person recognition, spoofing protection, and health assessment together with other metrics extracted from the eye movement signal. The talk will also present how eye movements allow novel applications and solutions to the existing challenges in the Human Computer Interaction domain.

Speaker Bio: Dr. Komogortsev is currently a tenured Associate Professor at Michigan State University. Dr. Komogortsev has received his B.S. in Applied Mathematics from Volgograd State University, Russia, and M.S./Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from Kent State University, Ohio. Dr. Komogortsev conducts research in eye tracking with a focus on cyber security (biometrics), human computer interaction, usability, bioengineering, and health assessment. This work has thus far yielded more than 100 publications and several patents. Dr. Komogortsev’s research was covered by the national media including NBC News, Discovery, Yahoo, Livesience and others. Dr. Komogortsev is a recipient of two Google Virtual Reality Research Awards and one Google Faculty Research Award. Dr. Komogortsev has also won National Science Foundation CAREER award and Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) on the topic of cybersecurity with the emphasis on eye movement-driven biometrics and health assessment. In addition, his research is supported by the National Institute of Standards, Sigma Xi the Scientific Research Society, and various industrial sources. Dr. Komogortsev’s current grand vision is to push forward eye movement-driven biometrics as person recognition and health assessment platform in the future virtual and augmented reality devices.
