Dr. Carol Buttle – Director BBS IT Associates

Ada Lovelace, the daughter of Lord Byron and collaborator of Charles Babbage, was a computing pioneer and is considered by many to be the first programmer. To celebrate her life and achievements, BCS Hertfordshire Branch is holding its first Ada Lovelace Commemorative Lecture. The evening will start with a description of the life and achievements of Ada Lovelace.

It will be followed by a talk given by Dr. Carol Buttle, titled “Biometrics and Security”. Her talk will describe the technology of biometrics, its future direction and how its use will become widespread, affecting the general public. She will then discuss the security issues that need be resolved if the roll out of this technology is to be successful.

Dr. Carol Buttle is an eminent member of the IT profession and is an expert on the technology and development of biometric measurement and recognition systems.
