IREX Evaluation

See IREX IV Evaluation for the latest results.

In 2009 VeriEye SDK was recognized by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) as one of the most reliably accurate iris recognition algorithms among those tested. The VeriEye engine is also included in the MegaMatcher SDK.

The NIST Iris Exchange (IREX) Evaluation judged 18 state-of-the-art algorithms from 10 different providers and found VeriEye to be in the top 3 for accuracy. Neurotechnology had the fastest overall iris matching algorithm – 25 to 75 times faster than other top ranked competitors – while utilizing an iris template that is 3.5 to 7.5 times smaller than those same competitors' templates. Neurotechnology was the only provider to achieve such high rankings in all these areas.

IREX testing focused on compressed image recognition and interoperable formats in an attempt to provide data standards to support data exchange, storage and "smart card" use.
