Fingerprint recognition algorithms
MINEX III Compliance and previous MINEX evaluations
In 2023 Neurotechnology's fingerprint template matching algorithm achieved first place in the NIST MINEX III evaluation. Combined with the existing first position in the template generator interoperability category, Neurotechnology is the top vendor within the MINEX III evaluation overall. These results on continuously expanding participating vendors' algorithm sets have confirmed and retained Neurotechnology's position as the leading fingerprint recognition software vendor in terms of both performance and reliability since Neurotechnology's first-place achievement in the template generator algorithm category in 2019. Also, in 2018 the latest fingerprint algorithm for smart cards submission has shown significant improvement in reliability since 2016 with proven outstanding template generator at enhanced performance, demonstrating significantly lower error rates than minimal interoperability and minimal accuracy specifications.
In 2017 MegaMatcher SDK fingerprint technology was ranked as the first most interoperable matcher and the fourth most accurate native template matcher vendor among all MINEX III compliant matchers. In 2016 MegaMatcher on Card SDK fingerprint matching algorithm for smart cards also successfully passed MINEX III evaluation.
Our comments on MINEX III participation contain more details about the results.
In 2014 MegaMatcher SDK fingerprint technology was recognized by the NIST as fully MINEX compliant and placed second in the Ongoing MINEX ranking for fingerprint matching algorithms.
In 2007 previous version of MegaMatcher SDK was one of the several algorithms worldwide recognized as fully MINEX compliant for both fingerprint template encoding and matching.
PFT III (Proprietary Fingerprint Template) and previous PFT Evaluations
In 2023 Neurotechnology's fingerprint recognition algorithm has shown the most accurate results in most of the experiments at the PFT III. See our comments for more information.
Previously, different versions of Neurotechnology's fingerprint recognition algorithm were submitted to the NIST Proprietary Fingerprint Template Evaluation. The algorithm submissions showed the best overall template matching accuracy at the previous PFT II evaluation.
SlapSeg III Evaluation
Neurotechnology's slap fingerprint segmentation algorithm has been judged by NIST as the most accurate among the SlapSeg III 2 inch and 5.5 inch category participants, as well as second most accurate in the 8 inch category. See our comments for more information.
In 2020 Neurotechnology's fingerprint recognition algorithm has shown the top result at the FVC-onGoing evaluation.
The fingerprint extractor and matcher, which are included in the MegaMatcher SDK, were ranked as the most accurate for both FV-STD-1.0 and FV-HARD-1.0 benchmarks.

FpVTE 2012 and FpVTE 2003 (the Fingerprint Vendor Technology Evaluations)
In 2015 Neurotechnology's fingerprint identification algorithms have been judged by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) as one of the fastest and most accurate among the participants. Our comments on FpVTE 2012 participation contain details about the results in each category.
Previously, Neurotechnology participated in FpVTE 2003 under the name Neurotechnologija and showed one of the best reliability results in the Middle Scale Test. See the FpVTE 2003 web site for a detailed report of the evaluation results.
WSQ 3.1 Certification
In 2011 FBI certified Neurotechnology's implementation of WSQ image format support. Certificates and additional information are available.
Palmprint recognition algorithms
In 2019 Neurotechnology's palmprint matching algorithm has shown the top result at the FVC-onGoing evaluation.
The palmprint matching engine of MegaMatcher SDK was recognized as the most accurate overall and fastest among the five most accurate matchers.

Face recognition algorithms
FRVT 1:1 and 1:N Ongoing
In 2023 Neurotechnology facial recognition algorithm scored among the top algorithms in both 1:1 verification and 1:N identification scenarios. The algorithm ranked in the top 3% most accurate algorithms for 1:1 verification border control supervised (Visa Border, Border) and unsupervised (Kiosk) scenarios, as well as for recognition accuracy with face masks. Also, the algorithm ranked in the top 4% of the leading results matching frontal and profile mugshots scenarios for 1:N identification, as well as top results among border control supervised (Visa vs Border, Border vs Border ΔT ≥ 10 YRS) and unsupervised (Visa vs Kiosk) scenarios.
FIVE (Face in Video Evaluation)
In 2015 Neurotechnology face recognition engine was submitted to the NIST Face in Video Evaluation (FIVE). In average the submitted algorithm was ranked among top 8 most accurate face recognition algorithms out of 16 vendors. See our comment for more information.
Iris recognition algorithms
IREX 10 Results
In 2023 Neurotechnology's iris recognition algorithm has been judged by NIST as the most accurate among the IREX 10 participants in the Rank 1 category. The submitted algorithm outperformed other contenders in both single-eye and two-eye assessments. Also, it showed top results for most performance metrics.
