Latest NIST Test Shows Cognitec’s Face Recognition Algorithm with Overall Best Accuracy-Speed Tradeoff

Algorithm development at Cognitec continues to engineer the optimal balance between speed and accuracy of face matching processes. The latest results of the U.S. NIST Face Recognition Vendor Test for identification tasks show the Cognitec algorithm in the best position of all algorithms when relating the template generation time to the false negative identification rate…

Infineon and IDEX Biometrics announces platform for biometric smart cards

A research report by ABI Research* projects the market for biometric payment cards to be reaching 353 million pieces per year by 2025 globally as an optimistic scenario. Allowing card manufacturers to address this new growing market segment, Infineon Technologies AG (FSE: IFX / OTCQX: IFNNY), the global leader in smart card payment solutions, and IDEX…

Cognitec’s Face Recognition Technology Enables Verification in Veridos eGates at Bangladesh Airports

Bangladesh is now operating the country’s first eGates at the capital’s airport, featuring Veridos gates with Cognitec’s face recognition technology. The airport currently uses 12 eGates at the departure terminal and three eGates at the arrival terminal. Veridos will install 28 eGates at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport and 22 eGates at other international border check…

High tech meets design: screenless wristband enables communication and contactless payment with innovative biometrics

The IoT (Internet of Things) building blocks from Infineon Technologies AG are becoming ever more powerful, energy-efficient, and smaller. Today, practically any everyday object can be enriched with smart functions to make life easier. Using system solutions from Infineon, Deed ®, a deep tech start-up from Turin, Italy, has been able to create a screenless yet…

Infineon contributes to CardLab’s new Biometric Card Solution

In this new 'Digital Age', it has become increasingly important to remember passwords or where one has stored information that has concrete value. Individuals have lost millions because they have forgotten passwords or caused organisation great distress to recreate their identity. However, these problem can now be a relic of the past as CardLab introduces…

New mask-tolerant matching algorithm and age estimator boosts accuracy levels for Cognitec’s entire product suite

Highly focused and innovative R&D initiatives have again raised accuracy levels of Cognitec’s main matching algorithm and its age estimation technology. The latest versions are showing remarkably robust test results for facial images with masks. Advanced neural network training and a new face finder contributed to generally increase the robustness against significant facial occlusion caused,…

Advancing contactless payments: Infineon , Fingerprint Cards join forces to drive mass deployment of biometric cards

Payment cards with integrated fingerprint sensor make contactless payments more convenient, more secure and hygienic. The contactless card remains in the hands of the cardholder throughout the entire payment transaction, while eliminating the need for PIN entries or signatures to authorize even high-value payments. Infineon Technologies AG and Fingerprint Cards AB  have joined forces to…

Why secure biometric systems still require hardware-based security

The Silicon Trust caught up with Infineon's Bernd Zwattendorfer to ask about his latest published article on biometric systems, FIDO and the impact that COVID-19 has had on the use of biometric systems.
