Data mining today is being used widely in diverse areas. For example: fraudulent systems, recommender systems, disease prediction, and numerous other applications. One such application is exploited in this paper. In this paper, the authors present an approach to detect gender of a person through frontal facial image, using techniques of data mining and Delaunay triangulation. Gender prediction can prove to be a very useful technique in HCI (Human Computer Interaction) Systems. Classification, being a very power technique in data mining to group categorical data, is used here to classify a gender as either male, or female.
