Combining Classifiers for Robust Face Detection
In this paper, we propose a face detection method by combining classifiers. We apply two classifiers using features extracted from complementary feature subspaces learned by principal component analysis (PCA). The two classifiers employ the same classification model named a polynomial neural network (PNN). The outputs of the two classifiers are fused to make the final decision. The effectiveness of the proposed method has been demonstrated in experimentals.
