21. An Other-Race Effect for Face Recognition Algorithms
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 8/19/2009
Authors: P Jonathon Phillips, Alice J. O'Toole, Fang Jiang, Abhijit Narvekar, Julianne Ayadd
Abstract: Psychological research indicates that humans recognize faces of their own race more accurately than faces of other races. This "other-race effect" occurs for algorithms tested in a recent international competition for state-of-the-art face recogniti ...

22. Assessing Face Acquisition
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7540
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 9/15/2008
Authors: Mary Frances Theofanos, Brian C Stanton, Charles L Sheppard, Ross J Micheals, John M Libert, Shahram Orandi
Abstract: The requirements necessary for taking a successful face picture are arguably the least constrained of any biometric. The camera must be operational, and the subject must be illuminated sufficiently and facing the camera. Yet, a significant portion of ...

24. BiCCL: The Biometric Client Configuration Language
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7531
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 10/1/2008
Authors: Matthew L Aronoff, Ross J Micheals
Abstract: In this paper, we introduce the Biometric Client Configuration Language, or BiCCL. BiCCL is a platform-independent, domain-specific language (DSL) that formally describes the biometric acquisition process. BiCCL uses high-level constructs---e.g., se ...
