Competing notions of biometric recognition system failure prediction have emerged recently, which can roughly be categorized as quality and non-quality based approaches. Quality, while well correlated overall with recognition performance, is a weaker indication of how the system will perform in a particular instance - something of primary importance for critical installations, screening areas, and surveillance posts. An alternative approach, incorporating a failure prediction receiver operator… CONTINUE READING
