NIST testing ranks TECH5 among the world's best performing Face Recognition Algorithms

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND / ACCESSWIRE, Apr 18, 2019 - (ACN Newswire) - Recently released results from the Face Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT 1:1 Ongoing), conducted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), rank TECH5 as one of the leading biometric technology companies in the world. "Ranking second in the VISA category, the largest database in NIST testing, confirms our experience and excellence in biometric technologies, as well as the top quality of our research and development teams", comments Rahul Parthe, Chairman and Co-founder of TECH5. "We continue to invest heavily in Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning techniques to keep improving our world class Face, Finger and Iris core algorithms. Our mission is to develop large scale systems that address and solve real world problems."

The FRVT is an ongoing evaluation of more than 100 face algorithms submitted by biometric technology providers from all over the world. NIST benchmarks the algorithms by measuring their performance on the automatic recognition of face images, while checking for errors when comparing and verifying different types of images from visa applications as well as random photojournalism images etc.
