162. Performance of Biometric Quality Measures
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 4/16/2007
Authors: Patrick J Grother, Elham Tabassi
Abstract: We document methods for the quantitative evaluation of systems that produce a scalar summary of a biometric sample¿s quality. We predicate this on the idea that the quality measure predicts performance, whether by design or correlation. We do this ab ...
