A Novel Gabor-LDA Based Face Recognition Method
In this paper, a novel face recognition method based on Gabor-wavelet and linear discriminant analysis (LDA) is proposed. Given training face images, discriminant vectors are computed using LDA. The function of the discriminant vectors is two-fold. First, discriminant vectors are used as a transform matrix, and LDA features are extracted by projecting original intensity images onto discriminant vectors. Second, discriminant vectors are used to select discriminant pixels, the number of which is much less than that of a whole image. Gabor features are extracted only on these discriminant pixels. Then, applying LDA on the Gabor features, one can obtain the Gabor-LDA features. Finally, a combined classifier is formed based on these two types of LDA features. Experimental results show that the proposed method performs better than traditional approaches in terms of both efficiency and accuracy.. . .
