12. Performance of Face Identification Algorithms
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8009
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 5/21/2014
Authors: Patrick J Grother, Mei L Ngan
Abstract: This report documents performance of one-to-many face identification algorithms, and compares it with that in 2010. Performance in this context refers recognition accuracy and computational resource usage as measured by executing those algorithms ...

13. Characterization of Latent Print ,Lights-OutŠ Modes for Automated Fingerprint Identification Systems (AFIS)
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 5/1/2014
Authors: Vladimir N Dvornychenko, Stephen Bruce Meagher, Michael D Garris
Abstract: The term ,lights-outŠ for AFIS ten-print fingerprint operations has been around for many years and is generally understood to mean ,no human intervention is involved.Š But is this appropriate for AFIS latent print operations? Is it truly possible to ...

16. Face Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT) - Performance of Automated Age Estimation Algorithms
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7995
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 3/20/2014
Authors: Mei L Ngan, Patrick J Grother
Abstract: Facial Age Estimation is an area of study new to the Face Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT) Still Track. While peripheral to traditional face recognition, it has become a growing area of research given its potential use in commercial and biometric app ...
