Biometrics Research Centre (BRC)
The Joint Biometrics Research Centre is a base dedicated to both advancing the frontiers of research in the multidisciplinary area of biometric computing and to being on the cutting edge in developing biometrics technologies. The Centre consists of four units in Hong Kong, Macau, and mainland China: the Biometrics Research Centre (BRC) at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU), the Data-Driven Intelligent Systems Lab at The University of Macau (UM), the Bio-computing Research Center (BRC) at The Harbin Institute of Technology/Harbin Institute of Technology Shenzhen Graduate School (HIT/HITSZ) (Harbin/Shenzhen, China), and a research laboratory at Tsinghua University (China).
The BRC is committed to maintaining its role as a front-runner and leader in the world in biometric technology in the 21st century, and in applying the various technologies to biometrics-related industries for the growth and development of related industries in China and Hong Kong. The centre is putting its efforts into maintaining a few large databases to international standards, such as those on palmprints and tongues, which are open all researchers. It is also driving multi-disciplinary research and collaboration with parties worldwide.
