Feature Selection is a optimization technique used in face recognition technology. Feature selection removes the irrelevant, noisy and redundant data thus leading to the more accurate recognition of face from the database. Cuckko Algorithm is one of the recent optimization algorithm in the league of nature based algorithm. Its optimization results are better than the PSO and ACO optimization algorithms. The proposal of applying the Cuckoo algorithm for feature selection in the process of face recognition is presented in this paper.
