232. Face Recognition Vendor Test 2002 Performance Metrics
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6982
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 3/1/2003
Authors: Patrick J Grother, Ross J Micheals, P Jonathon Phillips
Abstract: We present the methodology and recognition performance characteristics used in the Face Recognition Vendor Test 2002. We refine the notion of a biometric imposter, and show that the traditional measures of identification and verification performanc ...
