Facial recognition firm Corsight AI has received top rankings in the 2020 Biometric Technology Rally, conducted by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T).

The Rally tested ten leading face recognition providers and matching algorithms capable of detecting and identifying individuals with and without masks.

The testing lasted ten days and examined the faces of 582 diverse volunteers from 60 countries.

In addition, 60 facial recognition configurations were tested, utilizing six face and/or iris acquisition systems, and evaluating their biometric accuracy, alongside processing time and overall satisfaction.

Corsight AI scored first in tests assessing facial recognition algorithms’ capabilities without the presence of masks with a 99.65 percent accuracy rate.

“We are thrilled with the results of the 2020 Biometric Technology Rally as they underscore Corsight’s ability to accurately identify individuals even under the most challenging conditions,” commented Corsight AI CEO Rob Watts.

The company also ranked second when considering mask-detection scenarios, with an accuracy rate of 92.53 percent.

“Not only do these results substantiate our technology, but prove that facial recognition is a force for good,” Watts explained. “During this global pandemic, masks have become a societal norm, and facial recognition technology keeps those who may cause harm from hiding behind the masks.”

Corsight has also been on something of a hiring spree of late.
