36. IREX VI - Temporal Stability of Iris Recognition Accuracy
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7948
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 7/11/2013
Authors: Patrick J Grother, James R Matey, Elham Tabassi, George W Quinn, Michael Chumakov
Abstract: Background: Stability is a required definitional property for a biometric to be useful. Quantitative statements of stability are operationally important as they dictate re-enrollment schedules e.g. of a face on a passport. Ophthalmologists consider ...
