Rapid Face Recognition Technology Using Eigenfaces and Gabor Filter
Face recognition is one of biometric methods, to identify given face image using main features of face. Face recognition system is a computer application for automatically identifying or verifying a person from a digital image. Gabor filters have proven themselves to be a powerful tool for feature extraction. Proposed methodology is connection of two stages - Face detection using Haar based cascade classifier, feature extraction using Gabor Filter and recognition using Eigen faces. The Eigen-face approach used for the recognition of the images. It gives them efficient way to find the lower dimensional space.
