A joint density based rank-score fusion for soft biometric recognition at a distance

A joint density based rank-score fusion for soft biometric recognition at a distance
In order to improve recognition performance, fusion has become a key technique in the recent years. Compared with single-mode biometrics, the recognition rate of multi-modal biometric systems is improved and the final decision is more confident. This paper introduces a novel joint density distribution based rank-score fusion strategy that combines rank and score information. Recognition at a distance has only recently been of interest in soft biometrics. We create a new soft biometric database containing the human face, body and clothing attributes at three different distances to investigate the influence by distance on soft biometric fusion. A comparative study about our method and other state of the art rank level and score level fusion methods are also conducted in this paper. The experiments are performed using a soft biometric database we created. The results demonstrate the recognition performance is significantly improved by our proposed method.

Abstract

In order to improve recognition performance, fusion has become a key technique in the recent years. Compared with single-mode biometrics, the recognition rate of multi-modal biometric systems is improved and the final decision is more confident. This paper introduces a novel joint density distribution based rank-score fusion strategy that combines rank and score information. Recognition at a distance has only recently been of interest in soft biometrics. We create a new soft biometric database containing the human face, body and clothing attributes at three different distances to investigate the influence by distance on soft biometric fusion. A comparative study about our method and other state of the art rank level and score level fusion methods are also conducted in this paper. The experiments are performed using a soft biometric database we created. The results demonstrate the recognition performance is significantly improved by our proposed method.
