Abstract

We investigate mechanisms which can endow the computer with the ability of describing a human face by means of computer vision techniques. This is a necessary requirement in order to develop HCI approaches which make the user feel himself/herself perceived. This paper describes our experiences considering gender, race and the presence of moustache and glasses. This is accomplished comparing, on a set of 6000 facial images, two different face representation approaches: Principal Components Analysis (PCA) and Gabor filters. The results achieved using a Support Vector Machine (SVM) based classifier are promising and particularly better for the second representation approach.
