Neusciences was formed in 1989 and is a privately owned part of the Skylake Holdings Group. They research and develop software tools for applications using intelligent software technologies. Neusciences have developed a range of application tools, often neural network based. These include data mining/data analysis software tools and intelligent biometrics security applications. In addition to strong links with the UK academic base, Neusciences has its own scientific and engineering R&D team to ensure it remains at the leading edge of developments in intelligent software technologies.
This is a well-presented Web site that contains plenty of useful information. It discusses cost savings associated with biometric technology and Neusciences' range of products, including VeinCheck, a system that identifies a person using the patterns of veins in the back of the hand.
Visionics Corporation was formed on 15 February 2001 as a merger between Digital Biometrics, Inc. and Visionics Corporation. Visionics is a founding member of the International Biometrics Industry Association (IBIA) and is committed to a code of ethics recognising the protection of privacy as a fundamental obligation of the biometrics industry.
The company's four lines of business, FaceIt®, Live Scan, IBIS and BNA are all related to the central mission of associating human actions with their identity. FaceIt® is a facial recognition software engine that will automatically detect human presence, locate and track faces, extract face images, perform identification by matching against a database of people it has seen before or pre-enrolled users.
This is a vast site from the self appointed masters of facial recognition. It contains large amounts of product information and a useful question and answer section.

Iridian Technologies is a world leader in the research, development and marketing of authentication technologies based on iris recognition. It offers unparalleled security for physical facilities, information networks and electronic transactions. Iris recognition is the most accurate, stable, scaleable and non-invasive human authentication technology in existence. It offers state-of-the-art authentication, destined to replace tokens, PINs, and passwords and to gain wide acceptance over less accurate biometrics like fingerprints, voice and facial recognition, hand geometry, and keystroke analysis.
This is another good site which is worth visiting.
