Ph.D. Candidate Giovani Chiachia Wins International Biometry Challenge

An algorithm developed by Giovani Chiachia, Ph.D. candidate supervised by Prof. Anderson Rocha and Prof. Alexandre Falcão, in a cooperation with Harvard University, got the first place in the MOBIO Face Recognition Competition of the  prestigious International Conference on Biometrics.

The Challenge Organizers emphasize that Giovani’s solution is remarkable, since it does not take into account fusion of data, and still beats some of the fusion-based systems:

“For the non-fusion systems, the clear winner in this evaluation is the UNICAMP/HARVARD system since it gets best results in all four rates. In the evaluation set of the male protocol they could even beat the fusion systems.”
