simple approach
Simple Approach
  • Recognize faces (mug shots) using gray levels (appearance)
  • Each image is mapped to a long vector of gray levels
  • Several views of each person are collected in the model-base during training
  • During recognition a vector corresponding to an unknown face is compared with all vectors in the model-base
  • The face from model-base, which is closest to the unknown face is declared as a recognized face.
problems and solution
Problems and Solution
  • Problems :
    • Dimensionality of each face vector will be very large (250,000 for a 512X512 image!)
    • Raw gray levels are sensitive to noise, and lighting conditions.
  • Solution:
    • Reduce dimensionality of face space by finding principal components (eigen vectors) to span the face space
    • Only a few most significant eigen vectors can be used to represent a face, thus reducing the dimensionality
eigen vectors and eigen values
Eigen Vectors and Eigen Values

The eigen vector, x, of a matrix A is a special vector, with the following property

Where  is called eigen value

To find eigen values of a matrix A first find the roots of:

Then solve the following linear system for each eigen value to find corresponding eigen vector


Eigen Values

Eigen Vectors

face recognition1
Face Recognition

Collect all gray levels in a long vector u:

Collect n samples (views) of each of p persons in matrix A

(MN X pn):

Form a correlation matrix L (MN X MN):

Compute eigen vectors, , of L, which form a bases for whole face space

face recognition2
Face Recognition

Each face, u, can now be represented as a linear combination of eigen vectors

Eigen vectors for a symmetric matrix are orthonormal:

Face Recognition

L is a large matrix, computing eigen vectors of a large matrix is time consuming. Therefore compute eigen vectors of a smaller matrix, C:

Let be eigen vectors of C, then are the eigen vectors of L:

  • Create A matrix from training images
  • Compute C matrix from A.
  • Compute eigenvectors of C.
  • Compute eigenvectors of L from eigenvectors of C.
  • Select few most significant eigenvectors of L for face recognition.
  • Compute coefficient vectors corresponding to each training image.
  • For each person, coefficients will form a cluster, compute the mean of cluster.
  • Create a vector u for the image to be recognized.
  • Compute coefficient vector for this u.
  • Decide which person this image belongs to, based on the distance from the cluster mean for each person.
