Analysis and Performance Evaluation of ICA-Based Architectures for Face Recognition
Prediction of the best ICA architecture for face recognition systems is somewhat complicated. This paper shows how the recognition performance of both architectures depends on the nature of feature vectors rather than several criteria such as different databases, number of subjects, and number of principle components. The investigation finds that Architecture-II yields the better performance than Architecture-I based on face feature vectors. The experiments are done on different face datasets like FERET, ORL, CVL, and YALE.
