    This paper presents a method for face recognition based on fuzzy clustering and parallel neural networks. Neural networks have been widely used for pattern recognition in various fields. However, the computing efficiency and the recognition rate decrease rapidly if the scale of neural network increases. In this paper, a new method of face recognition based on neuro-fuzzy system is proposed. In particular, the face pattern is divided into several small-scale parallel neural networks based on fuzzy clustering. Experimental results show the effectiveness of the proposed method.
