Face recognition is a challenging problem in biometric systems, which has received a lot of attention in the last two decades as it has numerous applications in computer vision and pattern recognition. There is remarkable progress in the face recognition systems under controlled conditions, but they degrade for uncontrolled conditions like pose, illumination, expression, and occlusion etc. In this paper, we discussed different algorithms like PCA, DCT, LDA, ANN, ICA, HMM, and Wavelet with its pros and cons. The different face database used for face recognition is discussed. It also discusses various challenges and possible future directions for face recognition task.
