Abstract for oa214_FPIV_2004_paper1

IEEE Workshop on Face Processing in Video, 5:83, 2004


O. Arandjelović and R. Cipolla.


In this work we consider face recognition from face motion manifolds. An information-theoretic approach with Resistor-Average Distance (RAD) as a dissimilarity measure between distributions of face images is proposed. We introduce a kernel-based algorithm that retains the simplicity of the closed-form expression for the RAD between two normal distributions, while allowing for modelling of complex, nonlinear manifolds. Additionally, it is shown how errors in the face registration process can be modelled to significantly improve recognition. Recognition performance of our method is experimentally demonstrated and shown to outperform state-of-the-art algorithms. Recognition rates of 97-100% are consistently achieved on databases of 35-90 people.

If you have difficulty viewing files that end '.gz', which are gzip compressed, then you may be able to find tools to uncompress them at the gzip web site.

If you have difficulty viewing files that are in PostScript, (ending '.ps' or '.ps.gz'), then you may be able to find tools to view them at the gsview web site.

We have attempted to provide automatically generated PDF copies of documents for which only PostScript versions have previously been available. These are clearly marked in the database - due to the nature of the automatic conversion process, they are likely to be badly aliased when viewed at default resolution on screen by acroread.
