ABSTRACT Face recognition has great demands in human recognition and recently it becomes one of the most important research areas of biometrics. In this paper, we present a novel layered face recognition method based on Fisher's linear discriminant analysis. The basic aim is to decrease FAR by reducing the face dataset to small size by applying layered linear discriminant analysis. Although, the computational complexity at the time of recognition is much higher than conventional PCA and LDA due to the weights computation for small subspace at the time of recognition, but on the other hand the layered LDA provides significant performance gain especially on similar face database. Layered LDA is insensitive to large dataset and also small sample size and it provides 93% accuracy on BANCA face database. Experimental and simulation results show that the proposed scheme has encouraging results for a practical face recognition system.

    ABSTRACT: Face recognition is one of the most promising and successful applications of image analysis and understanding. Applications include biometrics identification, gaze estimation, emotion recognition, human computer interface, among others. A closed system trained to recognize only a predetermined number of faces will become obsolete very easily. In this paper, we describe a demo that we have developed using face detection and recognition algorithms for recognizing actors/actresses in movies. The demo runs on a Samsung tablet to recognize actors/actresses in the video. We also present our proposed method that allows user to interact with the system during training while watching video. New faces are tracked and trained into new face classifiers as video is continuously playing and the face database is updated dynamically.

    ABSTRACT: Selecting a low dimensional feature subspace from thousands of features is a key phenomenon for optimal classification. Linear Discriminant Analysis (LDA) is a basic well recognized supervised classifier that is effectively employed for classification. However, two problems arise in intra class during discriminant analysis. Firstly, in training phase the number of samples in intra class is smaller than the dimensionality of the sample which makes LDA unstable. The other is high computational cost due to redundant and irrelevant data points in intra class. An Adaptive Margin Fisher’s Criterion Linear Discriminant Analysis (AMFC-LDA) is proposed that addresses these issues and overcomes the limitations of intra class problems. Small Sample Size (SSS) problem is resolved through modified Maximum Margin Criterion (MMC), which is a form of customized LDA and convex hull. Inter class is defined using LDA while intra class is formulated using quick hull respectively. Similarly, computational cost is reduced by reformulating within class scatter matrix through minimum Redundancy Maximum Relevance (mRMR) algorithm while preserving discriminant information. The proposed algorithm reveals encouraging performance. Finally, a comparison is made with existing approaches.

    ABSTRACT: Dimensionality reduction has been a key problem in Face Recognition. Independent Component Analysis (ICA) is a recent approach for dimensionality reduction. Locality Preserving Projections (LPP) is also a recently proposed new method in pattern recognition for feature extraction and dimension reduction. In this paper we have developed and analyzed the face recognition rate of ICA and LPP under varying illuminations and facial expressions. Analyzes is performed on YALEB databases which contains 64 illuminations conditions (5760 images) and ATT databases which contains major facial expressions (400 images). From the results we conclude that the best algorithm to recognize images with varying illuminations is ICA. On the other hand to recognize image with varying facial expressions, LPP is better to use because it has better recognition rate.
