Bayesian Face Recognition Using Support Vector Machine and Face Clustering
In this paper, we first develop a direct Bayesian based Support Vector Machine by combining the Bayesian analysis with the SVM. Unlike traditional SVM-based face recognition method that needs to train a large number of SVMs, the direct Bayesian SVM needs only one SVM trained to classify the face difference between intrapersonal variation and extra-personal variation. However, the added simplicity means that the method has to separate two complex subspaces by one hyper-plane thus affects the recognition accuracy. In order to improve the recognition performance we develop three more Bayesian based SVMs, including the one-versus-all method, the Hierarchical Agglomerative Clustering based method, and the adaptive clustering method. We show the improvement of the new algorithms over traditional subspace methods through experiments on two face databases, the FERET database and the XM2VTS database.
