Identifying Useful Features for Recognition in Near-Infrared Periocular Images

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The periocular region is the part of the face immediately surrounding the eye, and researchers have recently begun to investigate how to use the periocular region for recognition. Understanding how humans recognize faces helped computer vision researchers develop algorithms for face recognition. Likewise, understanding how humans analyze periocular images could benefit researchers developing algorithms for periocular recognition. The authors presented pairs of periocular images to testers and asked them to determine whether the two images were from the same person or from different people. The testers correctly determined the relationship between the two images in over 90% of the queries.
