Cognitec’s research and development team has finalised the next generation of the company’s industry-leading face matching algorithm, resulting in new releases of the complete product portfolio containing this superior technology.

For this algorithm, Cognitec reported remarkable leaderboard positions in the NIST Ongoing Face Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT) 1:1, ahead of all face recognition companies with well-established market presence and products.

The November 2018 results, comparing 100 algorithms from 57 developers, showed a top-ten performance ranking for Cognitec in accuracy tests with visa photos. In addition, Cognitec's template generation was the fastest among the highest ranking algorithms with false non-match rates lower than 0.01, at a false match rate of 0.0001.

Cognitec is proud to have maintained a stable, market-leading position within the biometric industry since 2002. Aside from excellent face matching capabilities, the company strives to provide personable customer support and to foster the responsible use of face recognition technologies worldwide.
