We introduce a deep learning based framework named as DeepIrisNet2 for visible spectrum and NIR Iris representation. Since, no ground truth dataset are available for CNN training for iris segmentation, we build large scale hand labeled datasets and make them public.

Abstract

We first, introduce a deep learning based framework named as DeepIrisNet2 for visible spectrum and NIR Iris representation. The framework can work without classical iris normalization step or very accurate iris segmentation; allowing to work under non-ideal situation. The framework contains spatial transformer layers to handle deformation and supervision branches after certain intermediate layers to mitigate overfitting. In addition, we present a dual CNN iris segmentation pipeline comprising of a iris/pupil bounding boxes detection network and a semantic pixel-wise segmentation network. Furthermore, to get compact templates, we present a strategy to generate binary iris codes using DeepIrisNet2. Since, no ground truth dataset are available for CNN training for iris segmentation, We build large scale hand labeled datasets and make them public; i) iris, pupil bounding boxes, ii) labeled iris texture. The networks are evaluated on challenging ND-IRIS-0405, UBIRIS.v2, MICHE-I, and CASIA v4 Interval datasets. Proposed approach significantly improves the state-of-the-art and achieve outstanding performance surpassing all previous methods.

An End to End Deep Neural Network for Iris Segmentation in Unconstraint Scenarios
An end to end Fully Convolutional Deep Neural Network (FCDNN) is proposed to perform the iris segmentation task for lower-quality iris images. The network is trained on Near InfraRed (NIR) images initially and later tuned on additional datasets derived from

Influence of segmentation on deep iris recognition performance
The rise of deep learning in computer vision and image processing has not benefited considerably from these trends so far. Most of the existing research on deep iris recognition is focused on new models for generating discriminative and robust iris representations. How important is the use of traditional segmentation methods

Joint Iris Segmentation and Localization Using Deep Multi-task Learning Framework
Iris segmentation and localization in non-cooperative environment is difficult due to illumination variations, long distances, moving subjects and limited user cooperation. Traditional methods often suffer from poor performance when confronted with iris images captured in these conditions. In this paper, we propose a deep multi-task learning framework, named as IrisParseNet.

Unconstrained Iris Segmentation using Convolutional Neural Networks
The extraction of consistent and identifiable features from an image of the human iris is known as iris recognition. We propose using a convolution neural network for iris segmentation. Our algorithm is accurate when trained in a single environment and tested in multiple environments.
