An effective and fast iris recognition system based on a combined multiscale feature extraction technique
The randomness of iris pattern makes it one of the most reliable biometric traits. On the other hand, the complex iris image structure and the various sources of intra-class varia...

Object detection by global contour shape
We present a method for object class detection in images based on global shape. A distance measure for elastic shape matching is derived, which is invariant to scale and rotation,...

Object recognition using a generalized robust invariant feature and Gestalt's law of proximity and similarity
In this paper, we propose a new context-based method for object recognition. We first introduce a neuro-physiologically motivated visual part detector. We found that the optimal f...

An incremental node embedding technique for error correcting output codes
The error correcting output codes (ECOC) technique is a useful way to extend any binary classifier to the multiclass case. The design of an ECOC matrix usually considers an a prio...

Two-dimensional Laplacianfaces method for face recognition
In this paper we propose a two-dimensional (2D) Laplacianfaces method for face recognition. The new algorithm is developed based on two techniques, i.e., locality preserved embedd...
