Using Challenge Problems to Advance the Development of Face Recognition Algorithms

P. Jonathon Phillips
Electronic Engineer
National Institute of Standards and Technology
Dr. Jonathon Phillips is a leading researcher in the fields of computer vision, biometrics, face recognition, and human identification. He is at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), where he is managing the Multiple Biometrics Evaluation 2010 and  the Multiple Biometrics Grand Challenge. His previous efforts include the Iris Challenge Evaluations (ICE), the Face Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT) 2006 and the Face Recognition Grand Challenge and FERET. From 2000-2004, Dr. Phillips was assigned to the Defense Advanced Projects Agency (DARPA) as program manager for the Human Identification at a Distance program. He was test director for the FRVT 2002. For his work on the FRVT 2002 he was awarded the Dept. of Commerce Gold Medal. His work has been reported in print media of record including the New York Times and the Economist. He has appeared on NPR’s ScienceFriday. Prior to joining NIST, he was at the US Army Research Laboratory. He received his Ph.D. in operations research from Rutgers University. From 2004-2008 he was an Associate Editor for IEEE Trans. on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence and guest editor of an issue of the Proceedings of the IEEE on biometrics. In an Essential Science Indicators analysis of face recognition publication over the past decade, Jonathon's work ranks at #2 by total citations and #1 by cites per paper.  He is a Fellow of the IEEE and the IAPR.
