In biometrics authentication systems, it has been shown that fusion of more than one modality (e.g., face and finger) and fusion of more than one classifier (two different algorithms) can improve the system performance. Often a score level fusion is adopted as this approach doesn't require the vendors to reveal much about their algorithms and features. Many score level transformations have been proposed in the literature to normalize the scores which enable fusion of more than one classifier. In this paper, the authors propose a novel score level transformation technique that helps in fusion of multiple classifiers.
