  • Written by Vanshika Malhotra

Researchers at New York University [Tandon School of Engineering] and Michigan State University have invented new artificial fingerprints, which they call DeepMasterPrints for hacking fingerprint sensor-enabled smartphones. According to a report by CNBC, the fake fingerprints, with the help of machine learning double as a ‘Masterkey’ to access one out of three smartphones which come with fingerprint scanners. The researchers involved in the new development are Philip Bontrager, Aditi Roy, Julian Togelius, Nasir Memon, and Arun Ross.
