About this book
Increased interest in face recognition stems from rising public concern for safety, the need for identity verification in the digital world, and the need for face analysis and modeling techniques in multimedia data management and computer entertainment.
This authoritative handbook is the first to provide complete coverage of face recognition, including major established approaches, algorithms, systems, databases, evaluation methods, and applications. After a thorough introductory chapter from the editors, 15 chapters address the sub-areas and major components necessary for designing operational face recognition systems. Each chapter focuses on a specific topic, reviewing background information, reviewing up-to-date techniques, presenting results, and offering challenges and future directions.
Features & Benefits:
*Provides comprehensive coverage of the main concepts, including face detection, tracking, alignment, feature extraction, and recognition
