Face recognition systems cannot cope with masked faces.
NIST has investigated how face recognition technology copes with masked faces. NIST digitally applied mask shapes to photos and tested the performance of face recognition algorithms developed before Covid-19 appeared. Because real-world masks differ, the team came up with variants that included differences in shape, color and nose coverage. Credit: B. Hayes/NIST.
