Welcome to SecuLar


SecuLar was a french research project funded by the Agence Nationale de la Recherche.


Since their invention, content based image retrieval systems (CBRS) and biometric systems have evolved separately. This is due to the fact that they originate from different research and industrial communities. This Basic Research project groups researchers from both communities who have observed that both type of systems have indeed a lot in common in terms of goals and technological blocks. These techniques are used, however, in quite different settings possibly explaining the gap between the two. The people involved in this SecuLar project believe that what is specific to each family of approach can now benefit the other for the two following fundamental reasons.
