IDEMIA’s facial recognition ranked #1 in NIST’s latest ranking

  • IDEMIA, the global leader in identity technologies, sees its face recognition 1:N algorithm achieve the best accuracy in the latest National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Face Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT).
  • IDEMIA’s technology provides a best-in-class combination of efficiency, scalability, accuracy, and fairness for facial recognition by the NIST benchmarks.

IDEMIA announced today that its 1:N facial recognition algorithm ranked first out of 114 systems tested in NIST’s latest FRVT1. FRVT test scores are considered the gold standard of the global security industry. The results reaffirm the company’s more than 40 year history as an industry leader in biometrics and reinforce its position as a leader in biometrics technology and innovation.

Test results demonstrated the performance of face recognition technology in one-to-many (1:N) scenarios, comparing a face image to a large database of face images to return one or more matching images. IDEMIA achieved the best accuracy score of 99.88% correct matches from 12 million facial images.

One of the important aspects of AI-based automated facial recognition is teaching its various algorithms not only to be accurate, but just as importantly, to be fast and optimized for fairness. It’s all about finding the right balance when dealing with large volumes of facial images. IDEMIA’s facial recognition solutions work with or without a mask and with the best compromise between speed and accuracy, demographic parity and can process facial profile images. FRVT evaluated IDEMIA’s core algorithms underlying all of its systems using facial recognition that meets access control, public safety and border control requirements, proving that IDEMIA has one of the leading identification systems on the market.

IDEMIA is truly committed to the highest level of technology to provide fast, accurate and fair solutions. These FRVT results follow other high-level NIST benchmarks previously achieved, further demonstrating IDEMIA’s technology leadership. The following awards speak to IDEMIA’s innovation and industry-leading security and public safety solutions:

  • FACE: #1 in fairness the latest NIST Face Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT) in 2022;
  • FACE Acquisition: #1 in US Department of Homeland Security’s 2022 Annual Biometric Technologies Rally;
  • FINGERPRINT: #1 at the mFIT Challenge in 2022.
  • FINGERPRINT: Ranked #1 for most records in the latest Proprietary Fingerprint Template (PFT III) benchmark for our AFIS-class algorithms in 2022.
  • IDEMIA’s algorithms achieve the most accurate performance on NIST’s 2022 ELFT test for fingerprint and palmprint records with 7-60% better accuracy than any other algorithm.

Jean-Christophe Fondeur, Chief Technology Officer at IDEMIA called : These results are further proof that IDEMIA is committed to the highest technological level for its AI solutions, in line with its mission to make the world safer by developing cutting-edge identity technologies.
