This was determined by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), considered the world’s most prestigious biometric engine evaluation entity. Alongside this milestone, Veridas’ voice biometrics was ranked as the second best choice worldwide. And, its combination of voice and facial parameters was ranked as the first commercial solution in its industry.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), considered the world’s most prestigious biometric engine evaluation body, reported the results of its latest evaluation. Specifically, this entity placed Veridas among the elite of facial biometric engines, as it came in fourth place out of the 150 algorithms presented.
In this way, the technology firm from Navarra achieved “its best result in the most demanding category”: the one-in-many (1:N) evaluation. In addition, it achieved a false negative identification rate (FNIR) of 0.0232 for a false positive identification rate (FPIR) of 0.001.
“This means that, when searching for a known individual in a database of 12 million records, the Veridas engine delivers the correct target as the first candidate 97.68% of the time. The biometric facial engine that achieved this result is the one that is now available in production for more than 250 Tier 1 customers that Veridas has in more than 25 markets,” the company said.
This achievement adds to “a long list of recognitions by NIST”, in whose evaluations Veridas has been “consistently ranked at the top globally”. In this respect, in addition to the above-mentioned milestone, Veridas also recently achieved new awards. For example, its voice biometrics was ranked second best worldwide. And its combination of voice and facial parameters was ranked as the first commercial solution in its industry.
