Multiple parameter algorithm approach for adult image identification

Multi-parameter algorithm with statistical approach for adult image discretion is proposed to figure out the obscene images. In this work, we propose an analysis on different color spaces to identify an effective pixel identification for human skin. In this work, an algorithm is incorporated to verify and spirit away the unambiguous image by identifying high skin pixel rate. This framed algorithm is verified in terms of accuracy, true negatives and false positives and the results expressed in this paper show that the algorithm worked well and fast in detecting obscene images.
