Part of the Series in BioEngineering book series (SERBIOENG)


This chapter is an extension of the previous chapter whereby digital face ageing is explained by taking into account lifestyle factors. The objective is to be able to predict the biometric facial appearance by including some prior and behavioral information like addictions of some drugs, alcohol, and smoking.
