IDEMIA’s Brian Martin discusses NIST’s role in driving facial recognition technology improvements

Since 2000, National Institute for Standards and Technology’s Face Recognition Vendor Test  (FRVT) has provided independent evaluations of commercially available and prototype facial recognition technologies to help determine where and how the technology can best be deployed.

These NIST tests are at least partially responsible for the improvement in facial recognition technology over the past couple of decades, according to Brian Martin, a senior director of research and technology at IDEMIA, a provider of trusted identities.

“It makes everyone compete to make a better face recognition technology,” Martin said. “I think that if it were not for the NIST tests, face recognition technology probably would not be at the state where it is today.”
