Neurotechnology claims top spot on NIST biometric fingerprint interoperability leaderboard
Neurotechnology has achieved the top position on the leaderboard of the latest National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) MINEX III (Minutiae Interoperability Exchange) evaluation for fingerprint biometric algorithms in both categories, according to a company announcement.
Algorithms from Neurotechnology were found to be both the most interoperable fingerprint template generator and most interoperable fingerprint template generator and matcher pair. Additionally, the company’s template generator and template matcher were found to be the second fastest on the leaderboard.
“I am proud of our research team for having created the most interoperable and accurate fingerprint recognition algorithm,” said Dr. Justas Kranauskas, head of the biometric research department for Neurotechnology. “An independent confirmation like this means that our customers can have confidence in our continually evolving and improving technologies.”
The MINEX III test evaluates biometric software against the NIST SP 800-76-2 Biometric Specifications for Personal Identity Verification (PIV).
The Neurotechnology fingerprint algorithm evaluated in the test is included in its MegaMatcher multibiometric product line, which can be used for fingerprint (VeriFinger), face (VeriLook), iris (VeriEye), and voice (VeriSpeak) modalities. Neurotechnology also provides it for large and national-scale applications in the MegaMatcher ABIS and MegaMatcher Accelerator products.
Neurotechnology also recently upgraded the facial recognition capabilities of its NCheck Bio Attendance product.
