ASPIRE© [Automated Secure Perception Image Recognition and Evaluation]
A Digital Tool for Assessing Public Banknote Authentication
SPR Ltd. is an acknowledged world leader in banknote perception testing. Although perception testing continues to serve a valuable purpose, the fast-moving needs of central banks and the banknote industry require a fast, flexible and low-cost method for assessing banknote safety for the public. To meet that need, SPR combined extensive experience with expert scientific knowledge of human authentication to develop ASPIRE©, an automated image analysis tool for assessing public banknote authentication.
WHAT IS ASPIRE©?
A fast, low cost AI-based method for assessing a banknote’s public authentication potential.
ASPIRE© combines automated image analysis of the entire banknote with a focused analysis of a banknote’s public-level security features.
ASPIRE© produces a Report Card with an assessment of the entire banknote design plus analysis of the banknote’s security features.
The ASPIRE© Report Card includes specific and detailed information on pathways to improvement.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
ASPIRE© applies proprietary image analysis software to digital images of banknotes and security features.
ASPIRE© software analyses perceptual, cognitive, and emotional factors scientifically proven to affect human authentication.
More than just basic AI, the ASPIRE© Report Card provides expert interpretation and pathways for improvement.
ASPIRE© IS USEFUL
Aspire© Report Card can be used to:
Benchmark new v. old banknotes.
Select optimal design and security features.
Assess effects of wear.
Assess impact of some types of visual impairment
Research shows that counterfeit detection is significantly more likely if users look directly at the primary security feature within one second.
ASPIRE© predicts the probability of fixating the security feature with >80% accuracy.
User authentication is more accurate and faster when visual effects on a security feature are obvious and intense. ASPIRE© analyses visual effects for complexity, intensity & engagement.
