RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--IDEMIA, the global leader in augmented identity, announced today that the company ranked second for passenger identification in the latest testing by the National Institute of Standards (NIST), confirming that IDEMIA’s facial recognition technology and algorithms are among the most accurate, fair and consistent in market.
The test focuses on ‘Identification for Paperless Travel and Immigration’ and is part of the ongoing Facial Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT) managed by NIST. The exercise simulated departing flights, populating galleries with photos of 420 arriving travelers at the airport, then measuring accuracy by running searches of photos at departure. IDEMIA’s technology conducted 536 simulated aircraft boardings, without experiencing a single false negative, which translates to a secure and frictionless boarding experience for passengers.
“As the market leader, IDEMIA’s technologies are based on over 30 years of expertise in deep learning and artificial intelligence and we see it as our responsibility to bring this expertise to the everyday traveler, keeping passengers safe across the world. NIST’s results confirm the robustness of our technologies with regard to managing different demographics. IDEMIA’s facial recognition technology achieves the most accurate results and delivers a key competitive advantage when handling complex scenarios,” said Jean-Christophe Fondeur, Chief Technology Officer at IDEMIA.
In addition to its outstanding performance in the passenger simulation, IDEMIA has maintained the top spot on NIST’s FRVT ranking since first published in late March 2021, reinforcing the trust and reliability of its facial recognition solutions at both a government and consumer level.
