ABSTRACT This correspondence presents a novel face recognition method that extracts multiple features in the color image discriminant (CID) color space, where three new color component images, D 1 , D 2, and D 3, are derived using an iterative algorithm. As different color component images in the CID color space display different characteristics, three different image encoding methods are presented to effectively extract features from the component images for enhancing pattern recognition performance. To further improve classification performance, the similarity scores due to the three color component images are fused for the final decision making. Experimental results using two large-scale face databases, namely, the face recognition grand challenge (FRGC) version 2 database and the FERET database, show the effectiveness of the proposed method.

    ABSTRACT: This paper investigates facial image clustering, primarily for movie video content analysis with respect to actor appearance. Our aim is to use novel formulation of the mutual information as a facial image similarity criterion and, by using spectral graph analysis, to cluster a similarity matrix containing the mutual information of facial images. To this end, we use the HSV color space of a facial image (more precisely, only the hue and saturation channels) in order to calculate the mutual information similarity matrix of a set of facial images. We make full use of the similarity matrix symmetries, so as to lower the computational complexity of the new mutual information calculation. We assign each row of this matrix as feature vector describing a facial image for producing a global similarity criterion for face clustering. In order to test our proposed method, we conducted two sets of experiments that have produced clustering accuracy of more than 80%. We also compared our algorithm with other clustering approaches, such as the k-means and fuzzy c-means (FCM) algorithms. Finally, in order to provide a baseline comparison for our approach, we compared the proposed global similarity measure with another one recently reported in the literature.

    ABSTRACT: A novel local feature descriptor, namely Directional Local Binary Patterns (DLBP), was proposed in this paper and applied for face recognition. The descriptor first extracts directional edge information, then codes these information using Local Binary Patterns (LBP). When applied for face recognition, a face image is divided into a number of small sub-windows, DLBP histogram extracted from each sub-window are then concatenated to form a global description of the face. The proposed method was extensively evaluated on two publicly available databases, i.e. the FERET face database and the PolyU-NIRFD near-infrared face database. Experimental results show advantages of DLBP over LBP and Directional Binary Code (DBC).

    ABSTRACT: A two-phase test sample sparse representation method (TPTSR) attracted wide attentions for its good performance after it had been proposed. This good method just exploited gray images for face recognition rather than color face recognition. In this paper, we extend TPTSR for color face recognition. We first exploit the first, second and third channels of each color image to produce recognition scores and then use a fusion scheme to obtain the ultimate fusion score for face recognition. Finally we use the fusion score to classify test samples. Our experiments compare our method with the original TPTSR, PCA, LDA, LPCA, KLDA on AR color face database. Our experiment results demonstrate that our method take a good performance on color face recognition.
