The objective of the SOTAMD project is to identify the state-of-the-art of morphed face image detection mechanisms by collecting in a distributed effort a dataset of morphed face images, for which image quality according to ICAO and EU Regulation 2252/2004 is ensured. Furthermore the project evaluates existing morphed face image detection mechanisms based on a common established benchmark protocol and morphed face image detection metrics. The project focuses on the scenario of differential morphing detection, where a bona fide facial image (captured in a trusted environment) is compared against the target of investigation (e.g. the printed image in the passport application process). The project will mimic the automated border control gate scenario, where the live face image of the gate is compared against the image in the chip of the passport.
