NIST top 10 takeaways – demographic differences

What is it?

The Biometrics Institute has put together a list of top 10 takeaways from the very detailed National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Face Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT) Part 3: Demographic Effects Report, published in December 2019. The first page comprises our key takeaways while the subsequent pages give more detail on each of these points and references them to the original NIST report.

How do members benefit?

The list of takeaways is intended to help members working with facial recognition technologies to better understand the algorithm they are working with so they can make informed decisions and improve future performance.

Who updates it?

This resource was compiled with the help of the Institute’s Future Direction Group (FDG).
