Innovatrics Celebrates NIST FRVT Leaderboard Position

Slovakia-based biometrics specialist Innovatrics is celebrating an important achievement in standardized industry testing: the company has retained its position on the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s FRVT 1:1 Leaderboard.

First launched in early 2017, the NIST’s Face Recognition Vendor Test is designed to assess the performance of facial recognition technologies with an eye to government, law enforcement and homeland security applications. The FRVT 1:1 Leaderboard is a running list of the 20 most accurate facial recognition developers, based on the performance of their most accurate algorithms in working with databases of visa and mugshot photos.

Ranking the developers based on the False Non-Match Rate metric, the FRVT 1:1 Leaderboard shows Innovatrics ranked in 9th – an impressive result, given that the NIST has assessed over a hundred algorithm providers.

In a statement announcing the Leaderboard ranking, Innovatrics Delivery & Solutions Director Matus Kapusta said it “is of great importance as it highlights the great value proposition of our products to system integrators and policymakers.” Kapusta went on to laud his company’s R&D team for developing a facial recognition algorithm “that meets and exceeds the ever-changing needs of the market.”

The news comes after Innovatrics delivered a particularly strong performance in the FRVT’s ‘wild images’ category earlier this year, an achievement that was followed by the company’s launch of its Biometric Ecosystem platform of facial recognition-driven authentication and security solutions.
