The IREX 10: Identification Track assesses iris recognition performance for identification (a.k.a one-to-many) applications. Most flagship deployments of iris recognition operate in identification mode, providing services ranging from prison management, border security, expedited processing, and distribution of resources. Administered at the Image Group's Biometrics Research Lab (BRL), developers submit their matching software for testing over sequestered iris data. As an ongoing evaluation, developers may submit at any time from Sept 30, 2019 onwards.
The concept of operations (CONOPS) document is open for comment. The API documentation was autogenerated from the header files irex.h and structs.h. To assist with development, a minimal working "stub" (a.k.a null implementation) is also available.
Please send comments and recommendations to firstname.lastname@example.org by Sep 7, 2019.
|July 26th, 2019||CONOPS & API document open for comment.|
|Sept 7th, 2019||CONOPS & API document frozen.|
|Sep 30th, 2019||NIST accepting submissions.|
Comprehensive results for all participants will be presented in the latest IREX X: Identification Track report once published.
The leaderboard will show the most accurate iris recognition algorithms evaluated in the IREX X Identification Track. Accuracy will be assessed using the standard error metrics FNIR and FPIR. A short introduction to these error metrics and how they relate to the performance of real-world biometric systems is presented on the Performance Metrics page.
How to Participate
Participation is open to any commercial or academic organization and there is no charge. Participation requires mailing the Participation Agreement and submitting software that adheres to the Concept of Operations and API specification document.
Participants are allowed to submit an implementation every 3 calendar months.
