The U.S. Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) and the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have launched the Face Recognition Prize Challenge (FRPC), which has a total of $50,000 in cash prizes. The challenge is designed to improve core face-recognition accuracy and expand the breadth of capture conditions and environments that are suitable for successful face recognition.
The challenge consists of a face identification component, which involves executing a one-to-many search to return the correct entry from a gallery.
The second component involves face verification, which requires the submitted algorithm to match two faces of the same individual while correctly rejecting faces of different individuals.
A $25,000 prize will be awarded to the applicant with the highest one-to-many identification accuracy, $20,000 for the highest one-to-one verification accuracy, and $5,000 for the highest one-to-many identification speed.
