191. Overview of the Multiple Biometrics Grand Challenge
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7607
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 7/23/2009
Authors: P Jonathon Phillips, Patrick J. Flynn, J. R. Beveridge, Kevin W. Bowyer, W T. Scruggs, Alice O'Toole, David Bolme, Bruce A. Draper, G. H. Givens, Yui M. Lui, Hassan A. Sahibzada, Joseph Andrew Scallan, Samuel Weimer
Abstract: The goal of the Multiple Biometrics Grand Challenge (MBGC) is to improve the performance of face and iris recognition technology from biometric samples acquired under unconstrained conditions. The MBGC is organized into three challenge problems. E ...

193. PFTII Report Plain and Rolled Fingerprint Matching with Vendor Proprietary Template
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7821
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 10/26/2011
Authors: Su Lan Cheng, Gregory P Fiumara, Craig I Watson
Abstract: This report is an extension of the ,Two Finger Matching with Vendor SDK MatchesŠ [1] which evaluated the accuracy of matching two plain fingers (right index and left index) with vendor proprietary fingerprint templates. This study is based on NIST‰s ...

194. 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 ...

195. 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 ...

196. Performance of Face Recognition Algorithms on Compressed Images
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7830
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 12/1/2011
Authors: George W Quinn, Patrick J Grother
Abstract: This report provides a comprehensive assessment of the ability of face recognition algorithms to compare compressed standard face images. Six well performing algorithms from the Multiple Biometric Evaluation (MBE) 2010 Still Face Track are us ...
