The finding of greatest practical importance is the discovery of a strong connection between a relatively simple measure of image quality and performance of state-of-the-art vendor algorithms in FRVT 2006. The image quality measure quantifies edge density and likely relates to focus. This effect is part of a larger four-way interaction observed between edge density, face size and whether… CONTINUE READING
