11. Comparison of Human and Computer Performance Across Face Recognition Experiments
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 1/1/2014
Authors: P Jonathon Phillips, Alice J. O'Toole
Abstract: Since 2005, human and machine performance has been systematically compared as part of face recognition competitions, with results being been reported for both still and video imagery. The key results from these competitions are reviewed. To analys ...

Author: Kevin C Mangold

13. WS-Biometric Devices
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 12/17/2013
Authors: Kevin C Mangold, Ross J Micheals

14. The role of the face and body in person identification
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 12/12/2013
Authors: P Jonathon Phillips, Rice Allyson, Alice O'Toole
Abstract: Information useful for identifying a person can be found both in the face and body. Previous studies indicate that when an entire person is visible, we rely strongly on the face for identification, even if the body can be useful. In this study, we me ...

15. Characterization of Latent Print ,Lights-OutŠ Modes for Automated Fingerprint Identification Systems (AFIS)
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 12/4/2013
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. Introduction to Face Recognition and Evaluation of Algorithm Performance
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 11/14/2013
Authors: P Jonathon Phillips, J. R. Beveridge, G. H. Givens, B Draper, Yui M. Lui, David Bolme
Abstract: The field of biometric face recognition blends methods from computer science, engineering and statistics, however statistical reasoning has been applied predominantly in the design of recognition algorithms. Here we broadly review face recognition fr ...

17. A Baseline for Assessing Biometrics Performance Robustness: A Case Study across Seven Iris Datasets
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 11/7/2013
Authors: Yooyoung Lee, James J Filliben, Ross J Micheals, Michael D Garris, P Jonathon Phillips
Abstract: We examine the robustness of algorithm performance over multiple datasets collected with different sensors. This study provide insight as to whether an algorithm performance derived from traditional controlled environment studies will robustly extrap ...

18. Unaware Person Recognition from the Body when Face Identification Fails
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 11/4/2013
Authors: P Jonathon Phillips, Rice Allyson, Vaidehi Natu, Xiabo An, Alice O'Toole
Abstract: How do we recognize someone when the face fails? We show that people rely on the body, but are unaware of this. State-of-the-art face recognition algorithms were used to select images of people with no useful identity information in the face. Human r ...

19. Effects of JPEG 2000 Lossy Image Compression on 1000 ppi Latent Fingerprint Casework
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7780
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 10/25/2013
Authors: Shahram Orandi, John M Libert, John Donald Grantham, Frederick R Byers, Lindsay M. Petersen, Michael D Garris
Abstract: This paper presents the findings of a study conducted to measure the impact of JPEG 2000 lossy compression on the comparison of 1000 ppi latent fingerprint imagery and 1000 ppi exemplar fingerprint imagery. Combinations of image pairs that vary ...
