A SEMINAR PRESENTATION ON FACE RECOGNITION SYSTEM

Submitted by Himanshu Vats B.Tech VIII Sem Computer Science

TOPICS OF DISCUSSION
What is Face Recognition System.. Why face recognition? What is difficult about face recognition? How is face recognition done? Other face recognition algorithms Future of face recognition

WHAT IS FACE RECOGNITION SYSTEM?

Face Recognition system is an face matching system ..which is generally used in to encrypt the password .

WHY FACE RECOGNITION?


Security
y

Fight terrorism ATM Home access (no keys or passwords)

Personal information access


y y

man-machine interaction Beauty search


WHAT IS DIFFICULT ABOUT FACE RECOGNITION??


Lighting variation Orientation variation (face angle) Size variation Large database

GENERAL IMAGE TYPES


Still image (digital photograph)


y

Digital camera Video camera

Dynamic image

GENERAL FACE RECOGNITION STEPS

Face Detection Face Normalization Face Identification


FACE DETECTION
In General Locate face in a given image Separate it from the scene
Different Approaches Motion detecting and head tracking Face Space distance

FACE NORMALIZATION

y y y y y y

Adjustment Expression Rotation Lighting Scale Eye location

FACE IDENTIFICATION

Application of a face recognition algorithm

PCA ALGORITHMS`
Principle Component Analysis Look at the principal components of the distribution of faces, or the eigenvectors of the covariance matrix of the set of face images

EIGENFACES ALGORITHM
Eigenfaces Initialization 1. Acquire an initial set of face images (the training set)

PARAMETER BASED FACIAL RECOGNITION


Facial image is analyzed and reduced to small set of parameters describing prominent facial features Major features analyzed are: eyes, nose, mouth and cheekbone curvature These features are then matched to a database Advantage: recognition task is not very expensive Disadvantage: the image processing required is very expensive.

TEMPLATE BASED FACIAL RECOGNITION


Salient regions of the facial image are extracted These regions are then compared on a pixel-bypixel basis with an image in the database Advantage is that the image preprocessing is simpler Disadvantage is the database search and comparison is very expensive

HOW THE SYSTEM WORKED

NOT EVERYONE LOVES FACE RECOGNITION


To easy to misuse for wrong purposes Technology is not accurate enough given the current technology and algorithms Difficult to use.

FUTURE OF FACE RECOGNITION


Advancements in hardware and software Very large potential market Remove its problem makes its more efficient..
