Hand recognition has received wide acceptance in many applications for automatic personal identification or verification in low to medium security systems. In this paper, we present a new approach for hand recognition based on abductive machine learning and hand geometric features. This approach is evaluated and compared to other learning algorithms including decision trees, support vector machines, and rule-based classifiers. Unlike other algorithms, the abductive learning approach builds simple polynomial neural network models by automatically selecting the most relevant features for each case. It also has acceptable accuracy with low false acceptance and false rejection rates. For the adopted dataset, the abductive learning approach has more than 98% overall accuracy, 1.67% average false rejection rate, and 0.088% average false acceptance rate. © 2012 Springer-Verlag.
