Two-Dimensional Bayesian Subspace Analysis for Face Recognition
Bayesian subspace analysis (BSA) has been successfully applied in data mining and pattern recognition. However, due to the use of probabilistic measure of similarity, it often needs much more projective vectors for better performance, which makes the compression ratio very low. In this paper, we propose a novel 2D Bayesian subspace analysis (2D-BSA) method for face recognition at high compression ratios. The main difference between the proposed 2D-BSA and BSA is that the former adopts a new Image-as-Matrix representation for face images, opposed to the Image-as-Vector representation in original BSA. Based on the new representation, 2D-BSA seeks two coupled set of projective vectors corresponding to the rows and columns of the difference face images, and then use them for dimensionality reduction. Experimental results on ORL and Yale face databases show that 2D-BSA is much more appropriate than BSA in recognizing faces at high compression ratios.
