261. The NIST Human ID Evaluation Framework
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6983
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 4/1/2003
Authors: Ross J Micheals, Patrick J Grother, P Jonathon Phillips
Abstract: In this paper, we investigate the utility of static anthropometric distances as a biometric for human identification. The 3D landmark data from the CAESAR database is used to form a simple biometric consisting of distances between fixed rigidly conn ...

262. The National Institute of Standards and Technology: NIST Contributions to Biometrics Technology
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 8/1/2013
Author: Bradford J Wing
Abstract: NIST has been at the forefront of information technology in its application to biometrics for almost 50 years. Early work revolved around developing hardware and software to perform automated analysis of fingerprint images and development of voice ...

263. The Second Census Optical Character Recognition Systems Conference
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5452
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 6/6/1994
Authors: Jon C Geist, R. Allen Wilkinson, Stanley Janet, Patrick J Grother, Bob Hammond, Norman W. Larsen, Randy Klear, Mark J Matsko, Christopher J.C. Burges, Robert Creecy, Jonathan J. Hull, Thomas P. Vogl, Charles L. Wilson

264. The neural representation of faces and bodies in motion and at rest
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 1/29/2014
Authors: P Jonathon Phillips, Alice O'Toole, Vaidehi Natu, Xiaobo An, Rice Allyson, James Ryland
Abstract: The neural organization of person processing relies on brain regions functionally selective for faces or bodies, with a subset of these regions preferring moving stimuli. Although the response properties of the individual areas are well established, ...

265. 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 ...

266. Topological Separation Versus Weight Sharing in Neural Network Optimization
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 4893
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 7/1/1992
Authors: O M Omidvar, Charles L. Wilson

267. Towards NFIQ II Lite: Self-Organizing Maps for Fingerprint Image Quality Assessment
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7973
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 2/3/2014
Author: Elham Tabassi
Abstract: Fingerprint quality assessment is a crucial task which needs to be conducted accurately in various phases in the biometric enrolment and recognition processes. Neglecting quality measurement will adversely impact accuracy and efficiency of biometri ...

268. Training dynamics on Neural Network Performance
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5696
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 7/12/1995
Authors: Charles L. Wilson, J L. Blue, O M Omidvar

269. Two Finger Matching with Vendor SDK Matchers
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7249
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 7/1/2005
Authors: Craig I Watson, Charles L. Wilson, Michael D Indovina, Brian J Cochran
Abstract: This report is an extension of the NIST Studies of one-to-one Fingerprint Matching with Vendor SDK Matchers which evaluated the accuracy of SDK (Software Development Kit) based on COTS (Commercial Off-The-Shelf) fingerprint matching systems for one-t ...

270. 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 ...
