261. The Challenge of Face Recognition From Digital Point-and-Shoot Cameras
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 6/25/2013
Authors: P Jonathon Phillips, J. Ross Beveridge, David Bolme, Bruce A. Draper, Geof H. Givens, Yui M. Lui, Hao Zhang, W T. Scruggs, Kevin W. Bowyer, Patrick J. Flynn, Su Lan (Su Lan) Cheng
Abstract: Face recognition is appearing in personal and commercial products at an astonishing rate, yet reliable face recognition remains challenging. Users expect a lot; they want to snap pictures and have their friends, family and acquaintances recognized. T ...

262. The Effect of Training Dynamics on Neural Network Performance
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5696
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 8/1/1995
Authors: Charles L. Wilson, J L. Blue, O M Omidvar

263. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly Face Challenge Problem
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 11/20/2012
Authors: P Jonathon Phillips, J. Ross Beveridge, Bruce A. Draper, Geof H. Givens, Alice J. O'Toole, David Bolme, Joseph Dunlop, Yui M. Lui, Hassan A. Sahibzada, Samuel Weimer
Abstract: The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly Face Challenge Problem was created to encourage the development of algorithms that are robust to recognition across changes that occur in still frontal faces. The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly consists of three partitions. T ...

264. The IJCB 2014 PaSC Video Face and Person Recognition Competition
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 8/29/2014
Authors: P Jonathon Phillips, J. Ross Beveridge, Hao Zhang, Patrick J. Flynn, Venice Erin Liong, Jiwen Lu, Marcus de Assis Angeloni, Tiago de Freitas Pereira, Haoxiang Li, Vitomir Struc, Janez Krizaj

265. The Myth of the Goats: How Many People Have Fingerprints that are Hard to Match?
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7271
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 9/13/2005
Authors: R. A. Hicklin, Craig I Watson, Brad Ulery
Abstract: The proportion of people who have fingerprints that are particularly hard to match (also known as "Goats") is a topic of great interest in biometrics, especially for those involved in the design, development, or evaluation of fingerprint-based identi ...

266. 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 ...

267. 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 ...

268. 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

269. 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, ...

270. 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 ...
