Innovatrics Ranked First in NIST ELFT Benchmarks

Innovatrics has reached the top with a rank 5 Hit Rate of 95.1%, outperforming the competition as seen in the chart from the NIST ELFT nutrition report and further strengthening its position as a leading provider of cutting-edge biometric solutions.

Hit rate is the most important metric derived from FNIR, and the resulting value is the percentage of times the correct subject appears at or above a rank in the candidate list. Nowadays, this is the most widely used method by fingerprint laboratories across the world where the results are reviewed manually.

Our key focus on the criminal investigation aspects of our ABIS is reflected in the improvements. The upcoming version of ABIS is due before the end of November and will contain the newest algorithm. Not only is it full of features that help law enforcement work more effectively, but it also yields better results in a shorter time,” explains Matus Kapusta, Head of ABIS at Innovatrics.

Innovatrics has scored exceptionally well in the so-called “lights-out” searches, a category where a threshold is used to filter out more than 90% of non-matching candidates. A higher threshold likely corresponds with fewer subjects for manual review, which saves the operator some time. With a hit rate of 82.4%, Innovatrics is ranked 2nd in a category where the Rank-100 Hit Rate was measured at FPIR = 10%. This is also NIST’s preferred accuracy metric because operating costs grow with the rate of these two errors. 

All the results are from the official NIST ELFT report. Values and plots used in this report are derived from searching the 285 probes from the dataset entitled FBI-Provided Solved Dataset #1, where feature data was available but not provided (i.e., “lights-out” search), with ≈ 1 600 000 distractor subjects in the enrollment database.

Several countries on different continents have already opted for Innovatrics ABIS for their law enforcement, from Guinea in Africa to Southeast Asia to several states in Brazil.
