ICE 2006 consisted of a large-scale, open, independent technology evaluation of iris recognition technology. To guarantee an accurate assessment, the ICE measured performance with sequestered data (data not previously seen by the researchers or developers). A standard dataset and test methodology was employed so that all participants were evenly evaluated. The primary goal of ICE 2006 was to determine the state-of-the-art capability of automatic iris recognition technology and to establish a performance baseline against which to measure future progress. Results of this effort may provide design input for future evaluations.
ICE 2005 Workshop
ICE 2005 consisted of an iris recognition challenge problem that was distributed to potential participants. The primary goal in ICE 2005, the recognition technology development project, was to promote and advance iris recognition technology that supports existing iris recognition efforts in the U.S. Government.
