Innovatrics: Top Performer in Every NIST FRVT Category

Innovatrics face recognition technology is a top performer across all categories in NIST Face Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT).

NIST Face Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT) is the most respected benchmark when it comes to evaluation of facial recognition algorithms for verification (1:1) and identification (1:N). The evaluation uses very large sets of facial imagery to measure the performance of face recognition algorithms developed in commercial and academic communities worldwide.

What has Innovatrics achieved?

November 2019 Results

FRVT Ongoing Part 1: Verification (1:1)

Based on these latest results, Innovatrics easily ranks ahead of every major ABIS and established facial recognition provider. Implemented in stand-alone security applications or existing biometric identity solutions, our face recognition platforms have been engineered to achieve industry-leading accuracy, speed, storage and memory consumption, and resilience.

FRVT 1:1  Verification, Sept. 2019 – Key Competitors

In FRVT 1:1 Verification, a total of 147 algorithms were submitted by 115 vendors, with the Innovatrics algorithm demonstrating remarkable versatility and accuracy across each of the seven measured categories. The achievement underscores the suitability of the Innovatrics algorithm for deployment in a wide variety of challenging use cases including border control, law enforcement, and camera surveillance.

FRVT Ongoing Part 2: Identification (1:N)

FRVT 1:N Identification Mode – Gallery Size 12M (Error Rate)

In the identification (1:N) evaluation, Innovatrics ranked as the fastest algorithm among more than 200 submissions. It only took a mere 13 milliseconds to find a specific face among 12 million subjects without compromising accuracy, placing Innovatrics on the 5th spot in identification accuracy among all vendors. The result also underlines Innovatrics’ unique combination of high accuracy and top speed, minus any performance trade-offs.

March 2019 Results

FRVT Ongoing Part 1: Verification (1:1)

The March results from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) show that Innovatrics face recognition algorithms are among the best in the world. In fact, in the wild face dataset, the Innovatrics algorithm emerged as the most accurate in the world, besting over 100 submissions.

FRVT Verification as of 04/15/2019: False non-match rate (FNMR) on Wild Faces (evaluated for FMR (False Match Rate) = 0.005)

The algorithm is adopted in every Innovatrics face recognition solution. It is a core part of the IFace library, which is used in our flagship products: ABISSmartFace, and DOT.


November 2018 Results

FRVT Ongoing Part 1: Verification (1:1)

In FRVT 1:1 Ongoing benchmark Innovatrics achieved excellent results across all relevant categories.

Our ranking among all algorithm providers in the core Visa category is 15th position (the same as our previous submission), even if competition is much stronger. Innovatrics is improving significantly faster than our competitors and the current results in this category are better than the results of all other ABIS providers.

In the wild category (column WILD 0.00001),  Innovatrics is ranked in the top 10 among all vendors.

FRVT Ongoing Part 2: Identification (1:N)

Innovatrics sent two submissions in the NIST FRVT Ongoing (1:N) with four different algorithms; our recent submission is evaluated in the report from July 2018.

Among all algorithm providers, Innovatrics is in the top 20 on FRVT 2014 and FRVT 2018 datasets using top 10 candidates (R=10) search category in 1.6M database. This use case corresponds to watchlist search typically done by police in ABIS.


August 2017 Results

In the ongoing Face Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT), as published by NIST on 25th August 2017, the Innovatrics face recognition algorithm demonstrated its outstanding accuracy by ranking among the best across each of the five datasets. These datasets were: Visa Images, Mugshot Images, Selfie Images, Webcam Images, and Wild Images.

What is NIST FRVT?

Face Recognition Vendor Tests (FRVT) provide independent evaluations of commercially available and prototype face recognition technologies. As of 2017, FRVT is conducted on an ongoing basis and will remain open indefinitely such that developers may submit their algorithms to NIST whenever they are ready.

How is the testing done?

The FRVT measures the performance of automated face recognition technologies applied to a wide range of civil, law enforcement and homeland security applications including verification of visa images, de-duplication of passports, and recognition across photojournalism images.  In all cases the input image contains one face only.

Performance reports include measurements of accuracy, speed, storage and memory consumption, and resilience. In its initial form, FRVT has one assessment track, for face verification. For more information, visit the FRVT ongoing webpage.
