Cognitec upgrades product portfolio with new face matching algorithm
Cognitec announced today that its research and development team has finalized the next generation of the company’s face matching algorithm, and that the company has issued new releases of its complete product portfolio containing this upgraded technology.
Cognitec reported leaderboard positions in the November 2018 results of the NIST Ongoing Face Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT) 1:1 for this algorithm.
The results, comparing 100 algorithms from 57 developers, showed a top ten performance ranking for Cognitec in accuracy tests with visa photos. In addition, Cognitec’s template generation was the fastest among the highest ranking algorithms with false non-match rates lower than 0.01, at a false match rate of 0.0001.
Cognitec’s products are used around the world to compare facial images to those stored in multi-million photo databases, to investigate persons in recorded videos, find known persons in real time, and for verification processes at borders.
