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

This is so we can better generalize to unseen data. Because, while it is simple it works quite well. Covariance is a single number that gives a measure of how are two vectors random variables changing with respect to each other.

The easiest way to create a dataset for face recognition is to create a folder for each person and put the face images in there. Now we need to build a database of features from the training images.

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 eigenvectors and eigenvalues of. This project is aim to implement facial recognition using Singular Value Decomposition SVD that has being widely used as the basis of facial recognition algorithms. Although I keep thinking that I need to clean it up given it was written almost 4 years ago now!

Just as in the Caltech classification tutorial, this can be achieved with a GroupedRandomSplitter:. I have also provided the code snippet in reply to his eigenfces. What I am looking for is a metric which will take in two whole observations with say dimensions each and return a single value, by which they compare.

I had been keeping quite busy. Well take that as an exercise! Hello, Thanks for the nice code and explanation.

Eigenfaces for Dummies

My basic concept was really brushed up……. I am doing face recognition using eigen faces as my final year project. The idea of this post is to give a simple introduction to the topic with an emphasis on building intuition.

Click to Enlarge Now to tutorrial what I just said, consider a simpson image as a non-face image, this image will be scored with each of the training images. You will see that there is a big difference between the two in general. You should see the actual person identifier and predicted identifier printed as each face is recognised.


How to choose them can be done in the following ways. Try the second last line of the code without dividing by and after doing so.

Once we’ve extracted the features, turorial can be performed using any standard technique, although 1-nearest-neighbour classification is the standard choice for the Eigenfaces algorithm. I have implemented your algorithm and it helped me a lot. Why is the threshold, important? If you have gray images in formats other than PGM, it will first randomly samples 10 pixels and determine if the image is in gray scale.

If you select red faces, try to select more eigenfaces if the result is not desirable. This is a Microsoft platform independent environment. The images of a face, and in particular eigenfaced faces in the training set should lie near the face space.

Eigenfaces can be understood as feature faces. Also, as a side note, I would really be interested in reading a post on character recognition. Find the average face vector.
