Research Institution
Software capable of generating synthetic fingerprint, face, and iris images may provide tremendous value to DHS organizations, USG components, and commercial organizations involved in development, testing, and operation of biometric systems. Such software could support cost-effective performance evaluation of new algorithms, optimize the speed and accuracy of deployed biometric systems, and reduce development and testing timelines. IBG will develop and license use of datasets on a customer-specific basis. IBG will work with the customer to define requirements and control parameters, such as image quality, demographic distribution, test case for genuine and impostor data, target algorithms. IBG will develop and license a synthetic biometric dataset generator SDK that supports development of standalone applications as well as integration into customer applications and environments. APIs will provide programmatic access to general parameters such as demographic distribution as well as modality-specific parameters such as sensor selection, positions, and quality. To support customers with highly specialized requirements for sensor technologies, demographic characteristics, or system design emulation that are not supported in the base software and that are not accessible through the SDK, IBG will license full source code versions of its synthetic biometric image generator, enabling customers to develop their own models using core libraries.
