NEC Corporation announces that its iris recognition technology from NEC Corporation ranked first worldwide in the latest benchmarktest of imaging technologies. iris recognition, IREX 59, conducted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology of USA (NIST).
According to the brand, in this benchmark test, the NEC technology was evaluated with an accuracy rate of 20,59% for “1:N identification”, using images with both eyes and an image base of half a million people.
NEC had also ranked first in the NIST’s benchmarkIris Recognition Test of 2018, as well as in the test results of the benchmark of facial recognition published in August 2018.
In recent years, NEC has you It has taken advantage of its state-of-the-art artificial intelligence (AI) technology to enhance the performance of its iris recognition technology applied to images with deteriorated quality that often occur in practical situations. This resulted in a significant improvement in the error rate when compared to previous technologies.
