Facebook’s Facial Recognition System Is Superior to FBI’s Next Generation Identification

When the FBI’s facial recognition system becomes operational this summer, it won’t be as accurate as Facebook’s system, the Verge reports.

The Next Generation Identification, which will store millions of photos, lists a ranking of 50 possible faces with an 85% chance of being correct, according to Verge.

Facebook’s new DeepFace system, by comparison, is more accurate. Give it two photos and it will identify the person with 97% accuracy.

“What will kill these systems is the false-accept rate,” said Shahar Belkin, CTO of FST Biometrics. “I don’t believe we’ll see a solution for that in the next five to ten years.”

Part of the problem is that the FBI is using poor quality photos that don’t show the face straight-on.
