Cognitec has reported a successful participation in the NIST Face Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT): Identification, confirming the solid market position of the FaceVACS matching technology, and the achievements of the company's algorithm research and development.The September 2019 results, comparing 203 algorithms from 51 commercial developers and one university, show Cognitec's excellent identification performance for large mugshot galleries, and greatly improved performance values for unconstrained images with severe pose variations, as produced in video applications.The B12 algorithm Cognitec submitted to the NIST test has been integrated in the company's product portfolio. The longest-lived face recognition company continues to optimize its matching algorithm for use in actual products, resulting in the best possible balance between accuracy and speed.
