FingerID launches AI AFIS promising fast and accurate biometric fingerprint matching at scale
An automated fingerprint identification system (AFIS) promising revolutionary performance and accuracy benefits at scale based on new innovations in artificial intelligence is being launched at the upcoming Milipol Conference by FingerID.
FingerID provides an SaaS framework to centralize all fingerprint identification requests from criminal investigations and immigration services after collaborating with the national police department to build a single national fingerprint repository. The company says its technology enables a single print to be identified from a database of 2 billion in less than one second.
The enhanced security and convenience of the AI fingerprint technology allows institutions to vastly upgrade identity verification and authentication for forensics, national ID, immigration, correctional facility, and other applications, according to the announcement.
The application works with all existing fingerprint collection devices, including mobile phones, and matches prints without requiring minutiae features to be manually marked, and with a series of algorithm and system design breakthroughs, still automatically perform matches against large-scale databases.
FingerID claims the service has been used to match latent prints in more than 60,000 criminal cases, and has resulted in hundreds of previously unsolved murder cases being cracked by processing previously unmatched prints.
The Milipol Conference will be held November 19 to 22 in Paris.
Idemia also recently integrated AI capabilities with its MorphoWave Compact touchless fingerprint terminal to upgrade its user experience and performance. Despite being upstaged in the media lately by technologies such as facial recognition and in-display fingerprint sensors, the AFIS market is expected to grow at an 18.4 percent CAGR to 2025.
