FACIAL POLYGONAL PROJECTION - A new feature extracting method to help in neural face detection

Adriano Martins Moutinho, Antonio Carlos Gay Thomé, Pedro Henrique Gouvêa Coelho

Abstract

Locating the position of a human face in a photograph is likely to be a very complex task, requiring several image and signal processing techniques. This paper proposes a new approach called polygonal facial projection that is able, by measuring specific distances on the image, to extract relevant features and improve efficiency of neural face identification systems (Rowley, 1999) (Moutinho and Thomé, 2004), facilitating the separation of facial patterns from other objects present in the image.
