The results of the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Facial Recognition Vendor Test show that IDEMIA’s facial recognition algorithm was 30 percent more effective than other platforms in one-to-many image matching scenarios.
NIST assessed 127 software algorithms from 39 facial recognition tech developers as part of FRVT, IDEMIA said Tuesday.
“NIST's FRVT results are further evidence of the new standard we have set with our suite of facial recognition technologies," said Donnie Scott, senior vice president of public security for North America at IDEMIA.
"We combine one of the most comprehensive algorithms on the market with industry-leading service to ensure that our partners achieve exceptional business and mission outcomes,” Scott added.
IDEMIA provides biometric technology and other augmented identity systems to federal, local and state law enforcement agencies.
