Abstract

A person identification system based on fast face learning of lifting wavelet filters is proposed. The real power of our system lies in fast learning of lifting wavelet filters adaptive to facial parts such as eyes, nose and lips, in a set of training faces. In our system, free parameters in the lifting filter are learned fast by using Newton’s method. The learned parameters are memorized in a database together with the training faces. The lifting filters with the learned parameters in the database are applied to each of video frames which contain faces of a person, and the faces are detected by measuring some kind of distance. A person whose face is detected in a maximum number of frames is identified as a target person. To realize fast face detection, the learned filters are applied only to the skin areas separated from background by using color segmentation. Simulation results show that our person identification algorithm is accurate and fast.
