To date, almost all experimental evaluations of machine learning-based recognition algorithms in computer vision have taken the form of "closed set" recognition, whereby all testing classes are known at training time. A more realistic scenario for vision applications is "open set" recognition, where incomplete knowledge of the world is present at training(More)
Cryptographic transactions form the basis of many common security systems found throughout computer networks. Supporting these transactions with biometrics is very desirable, as stronger non-repudiation is introduced, along with enhanced ease-of-use. In order to support such transactions, some sort of secure template construct is required that, when(More)

Digital images are everywhere—from our cell phones to the pages of our online news sites. How we choose to use digital image processing raises a surprising host of legal and ethical questions that we must address. What are the ramifications of hiding data within an innocent image? Is this an intentional security practice when used legitimately,(More)
Recognition problems in computer vision often benefit from a fusion of different algorithms and/or sensors, with score level fusion being among the most widely used fusion approaches. Choosing an appropriate score normalization technique before fusion is a fundamentally difficult problem because of the disparate nature of the underlying distributions of(More)
Real-world tasks in computer vision often touch upon open set recognition: multi-class recognition with incomplete knowledge of the world and many unknown inputs. Recent work on this problem has proposed a model incorporating an open space risk term to account for the space beyond the reasonable support of known classes. This paper extends the general idea(More)

The notion of quality in biometric system evaluation has often been restricted to raw image quality, with a prediction of failure leaving no other option but to acquire another sample image of the subject at large. The very nature of this sort of failure prediction is very limiting for both identifying situations where algorithms fail, and for automatically(More)
In this paper, we define meta-recognition, a performance prediction method for recognition algorithms, and examine the theoretical basis for its postrecognition score analysis form through the use of the statistical extreme value theory (EVT). The ability to predict the performance of a recognition system based on its outputs for each match instance is(More)
