Use of Biometrics and Artificial Intelligence in Libraries

Dr. Preeti Shrivastava

Biometrics and Artificial Intelligence applications are mostly related with Computer Science. Library and Information Centers are suffering the problem of Information Security in digital environment. Use of Biometrics and Artificial Intelligence in Libraries and Information Centers provide accurate solution of this problem. The conventional password-based and ID card-based methods do not really provide positive personal recognition because they rely on surrogate representations of the person’s identity. Due to digital impersonation security techniques are predominantly using biometrics. To eliminate identity theft, a measurable physical characteristic or behavioral trait is more reliable. In factual scenario, blend of AI and biometric identification and a keypad code provides virtually unbreakable security. This study elaborates the areas where AI and Biometrics used in Library and Information Centers. It is certain that biometric-based recognition and artificial intelligence will have a profound influence on the security of information in Library and Information Centers.
