Principle Component Analysis (PCA) technique is an important and well-developed area of image recognition and to date many linear discrimination methods have been put forward. Despite these efforts, there persist in the traditional PCA some weaknesses. In this paper, we propose a new PCA-based method that can overcome one drawback existed in the traditional PCA method. In face recognition where the training data are labeled, a projection is often required to emphasize the discrimination between the clusters. PCA may fail to accomplish this, no matter how easy the task is, as they are unsupervised techniques. The directions that maximize the scatter of the data might not be as adequate to discriminate between clusters. So we proposed a new PCA-based scheme which can straightforwardly take into consideration data labeling, and makes the performance of recognition system better. Experiment results show our method achieves better performance in comparison with the traditional PCA method.

    ABSTRACT: An improved Elman neural network, the hybrid feedback Elman neural network is presented for the modeling of unknown delay and high-order nonlinear system. The stability of the improved Elman network is proved in the sense of Lyapunov stability theory, and then chaos searching is imported to train it, make BP algorithm can skip the local minimum and find the global minimum easily. Modeling and prediction for the product quality of a certain propylene rectifying column with the new Elman network and algorithm, Simulation results show that the new network and the strategy can improve the network's training speed and the predictive precision of the product quality index effectively.

    ABSTRACT: Face recognition presents a challenging problem in the field of image analysis and computer vision, and as such has received a great deal of attention over the last few years because of its many applications in various domains. Face recognition techniques can be broadly divided into three categories based on the face data acquisition methodology: methods that operate on intensity images; those that deal with video sequences; and those that require other sensory data such as 3D information or infra-red imagery. In this paper, an overview of some of the well-known methods in each of these categories is provided and some of the benefits and drawbacks of the schemes mentioned therein are examined. Furthermore, a discussion outlining the incentive for using face recognition, the applications of this technology, and some of the difficulties plaguing current systems with regard to this task has also been provided. This paper also mentions some of the most recent algorithms developed for this purpose and attempts to give an idea of the state of the art of face recognition technology.

    ABSTRACT: Computer recognition of the human faces has evolved as the most successful and demanding field in the computer science world and in particular Computer Vision. A lot of research work has been done in this field in the last two decade. Numerous algorithms have been projected and they have been experimented with different face image database available. In this paper, a comparative study has been carried out using the two basic and the most important appearance based face recognition methods viz, PCA and LDA. These two techniques for face recognition has been implemented and evaluated with different databases like UMIST, Yale etc. The outputs are compared by using accuracy rate.
