Full Description
This book introduces a new performance evaluation framework designed to give complete coverage of performance evaluation of major biometric systems. Two key issues are presented: The first is to give a unique snapshot of the performance evaluation of various biometrics within a common evaluation framework. The second is the presence of benchmarking evaluation framework, to be used in future performance evaluations.Features: - provides a global perspective with a common evaluation scheme and methodology; - offers readers a tool for a better evaluation of their algorithms by giving them the instruments to fully reproduce the benchmarking (reference) experiments (software, database, experimental protocols); - examines current research results with this framework.This unique text combines state-of-the-art research with practical tools for researchers and graduates in the field of biometrics.
