The first Tattoo Recognition Technology – Challenge (Tatt-C) workshop will be held on June 8, 2015 at the NIST campus in Gaithersburg, Maryland. The Tatt-C activity was launched in September 2014 to challenge the commercial and academic community in advancing research and development into automated image-based tattoo matching technology with goals to determine which methodologies are most effective and whether any are viable for identified operational use cases.
This workshop will bring together Tatt-C participants from industry and academia and key sponsors and stakeholders to:
- Discuss current tattoo detection and matching performance and successes/technical challenges
- Share utility and perspectives on the operational use of tattoos
- Identify gaps and needs to support and progress future development
- Shape the follow-on evaluation activity
