The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity and the National Institute of Standards and Technology have introduced a prize competition for facial recognition software developers, MeriTalk reported Wednesday.

IARPA’s Face Recognition Prize Challenge aims to create technologies that will work to  analyze non-cooperative images wherein the subjects are unaware when the pictures are taken.

Interested developers can register for the challenge through June 15.

Participants will have a chance to win $25,000 for one-to-many identification accuracy software, $20,000 for one-to-one verification accuracy software and $5,000 for one-to-many identification speed software.

IARPA expects to attract developers of automated face recognition technologies from academia and industry to the contest.
