Moscow startup VisionLabs (part of Sber ecosystem) has become the best company in face recognition at airports for passport-free service, according to The US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

This year, NIST’s Ongoing Face Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT) tested algorithms under the scenario paperless traveling. The testing comprised both boarding passengers on an airplane and passing passport control using biometrics.

VisionLabs' solution was named the best in three tests and showed high recognition accuracy. For example, in the first case, it was 99.98% with a probability of a false positive of 1 in 3333, which was the best result among all vendors.

Research has also proven that VisionLabs' algorithms work effectively on photographs of different demographic groups, which is especially important when using solutions at international airports.

Earlier, VisionLabs was ranked FRVT’s 2020 best vendor in facial recognition algorithms.
