Evaluation of the accuracy of face identification systems for use in forensics
Fraunhofer IGD evaluated the recognition accuracy of four commercial off-the-shelf face identification systems for use in forensics. Face identification systems for use in forensics provide candidate lists with a selectable length (here: 100 candidates) to be checked by experts in forensic face recognition. The German Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) provided the digital face images used in the evaluation. In each system under test, approximately 4.8 million frontal portraits of approximately 3 million test subjects served as reference images. The reference databases remained unchanged for all searches. If available, several frontal portraits were enrolled per test subject without linking them together.
