******** Due to the current situation of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), NIST is in telework mode. ALL frvt tracks are temporarily suspended until further notice.
A new FRVT report released as NISTIR 8280 - FRVT Part 3: Demographic Effects on December 19th, 2019, describes and quantifies demographic differentials for contemporary face recognition algorithms. NIST has conducted tests to quantify demographic differences for nearly 200 face recognition algorithms from nearly 100 developers, using four collections of photographs with more than 18 million images of more than 8 million people. Using both one-to-one verification and one-to-many identification algorithms submitted to NIST, the report found empirical evidence for the existence of a wide range of accuracy across demographic differences in the majority of the current face recognition algorithms that were evaluated.
