A Continuous Learning for Solving a Face Recognition Problem
The authors propose a hybrid system for dynamic environments, where a "Multiple neural networks" system works with Bayes Rule to solve the face recognition problem. One or more neural nets may no longer be able to properly operate, due to partial changes in some of the characteristics of the individuals. For this purpose, they assume that each expert network has a reliability factor that can be dynamically re-evaluated on the ground of the global recognition operated by the overall group. Since the net's degree of reliability is defined as the probability that the net is giving the desired output, in case of conflicts between the outputs of the various nets the re-evaluation of their degrees of reliability can be simply performed on the basis of the Bayes Rule.
