Biometrically-Inferred Data (BID)

Biometrically-inferred data is a collection of datasets resulting from information inferred from behavioral, physical, and psychological biometric identification techniques, and other nonverbal communication methods.

Prime examples of biometric identification techniques that potentially contribute to BID are:

  • Facial recognition;
  • Dactyloscopic data (fingerprint verification;)
  • Iris scanning;
  • Retinal analysis;
  • Voice recognition; and
  • Ear shape recognition.
  • Keystroke analysis;
  • Handwritten signature analysis;
  • Gait analysis;
  • Gaze analysis (eye-tracking).
