Face recognition and semantic features

Huiyu Zhou, Yuan Yuan, Chunmei Shi

Research output: Chapter in Book/Published conference outputChapter


The authors present a face recognition scheme based on semantic features' extraction from faces and tensor subspace analysis. These semantic features consist of eyes and mouth, plus the region outlined by three weight centres of the edges of these features. The extracted features are compared over images in tensor subspace domain. Singular value decomposition is used to solve the eigenvalue problem and to project the geometrical properties to the face manifold. They compare the performance of the proposed scheme with that of other established techniques, where the results demonstrate the superiority of the proposed method.
