  • This paper presents a biometric user authentication system based on an ensemble design that employs face and voice recognition classifiers. The design approach entails development and performance evaluation of individual classifiers for face and voice recognition and subsequent integration of the two within an ensemble framework. Performance evaluation employed three benchmark datasets, which are NIST Feret face, Yale Extended face, and ELSDSR voice. Performance evaluation of the ensemble design on the three benchmark datasets indicates that the bimodal authentication system offers significant improvements for accuracy, precision, true negative rate, and true positive rate metrics at or above 99% while generating minimal false positive and negative rates of less than 1%.
