We’re going to discuss a popular technique for face recognition called eigenfaces . And at the heart of eigenfaces is an unsupervised. The basic idea behind the Eigenfaces algorithm is that face images are For the purposes of this tutorial we’ll use a dataset of approximately aligned face. Eigenfaces is a basic facial recognition introduced by M. Turk and A. Pentland [9] .. [6] Eigenface Tutorial

February 11, by Shubhendu Trivedi. So I thought it was not a bad idea to post notes even if it was on a simple topic, I might do so for other talks and the other part of this talk more often from now on, especially in the first some months of this year.

Hello sir, I am doing a project on Face recognition and reading old papers and journal for that. On the other hand – it’s literally following the maths described in this tutorial, so if you’re worried about implementing these algebraic operations – you might want to look at GSL GNU Scientific Library, you can find a pretty good documentation for it online.

Find the best Eigenvectors of by using the relation discussed above. Waiting for your reply………. They have just been picked randomly from a pool of 70 by me. It is of great help to me. As you explained, that once we have found the eigen vectors and the weight vector for each image, we have to store them and for recognition purpose we have to normalise the new probe and project it onto the same eigen space.


One of the favorite maxims of my father was the distinction between the two eigenraces of truths, profound truths recognized by the fact that the opposite is also a profound truth, in contrast to trivialities where opposites are obviously absurd. Jimmy, I would also be grateful if you could link me up with some literature which talks of using SVD etc for eigenraces the inverse covariance.

I had tried to make this article complete!

This can be represented aptly in a figure as: You should make sure that the length of the each tutkrial the square root of the sum of its squared components is equal to one. First of all thanks for the kudos. The EigenImages class needs a list of images from which to learn the basis i.

January 1, at I did my detection part very well using your exampleslinks and other your comments. See eigenvaces link if you need more details: This is a Microsoft platform independent environment.

You can also get your faces from other place. Try doing this by building a PCA basis as described above, and then extract the feature of a randomly selected face from the test-set.

I really like your post though, especially about how you relate it to Fourier series. But the probe image is clearly egenfaces beloning to the database. It uses an Information Theory appraoch wherein the most relevant face information is encoded in a group of faces that will best distinguish the faces.

I have never worked on a character recognition problem, but I have worked along on a information retrieval problem, and I can say that making a system with decent performance is not very difficult. I have to thank you again for sharing what you know, those other section you are discussing really help me.


Any number less or greater than this would give worse results. Due to human resources, time constraint, and level of experiences, this project does not try to innovate from the baseline method.

The distance of course should not come like that, it should come ttorial different for both positive and negative images. Then, when I compute eigenfaces, the result is not normalized. This paper uses C environment instead. Subscribe To Onionesque Reality By email. January 3, at 9: January 12, tutirial 3: I think there is an error in the dimensions of the “picture-vector” which you obtained by concatenating the rows of the image matrix into a vector.

You seem to have made a minor mistake. Consider a simplified representation of the face space as shown in the figure above. That aside, I think probably a discussion about change of basis would be both relevant and useful.

This is the case when the probe image is of a person i. Now observe, that ifthen. We now tutodial to calculate the Eigenvectors ofHowever note that is a matrix and it would return Eigenvectors each being dimensional.
