BioCatch recently announced that the U.S. Patent Office granted the company a new patent which detects user identities on electronic devices.
The patent outlines a method of detecting a user based on a motor-control loop model. The method includes: determining user identity vis-a-vis monitoring pointing device dynamics and gestures of the user, based on monitored dynamics and gestures, thereby estimating parameters that characterize a sensorimotor control loop model of the user. The method outlined then store in a database a record indicating that the user is associated with the parameters that characterize the sensorimotor control loop model of the user.
