This paper proposes a novel high-order local pattern descriptor, local derivative pattern (LDP), for face recognition. LDP is a general framework to encode directional pattern features based on local derivative variations. The <i>nth</i>-order LDP is proposed to encode the (<i>n</i>-1)<i>th</i> -order local derivative direction variations, which can capture(More)
This paper introduces the establishment of PolyU near-infrared face database (PolyU-NIRFD) and presents a new coding scheme for face recognition. The PolyU-NIRFD contains images from 350 subjects, each contributing about 100 samples with variations of pose, expression, focus, scale, time, etc. In total, 35,000 samples were collected in the database. The(More)
Recommended by Hubert Cardot This paper proposes a new face recognition method, named kernel learning of histogram of local Gabor phase pattern (K-HLGPP), which is based on Daugman's method for iris recognition and the local XOR pattern (LXP) operator. Unlike traditional Gabor usage exploiting the magnitude part in face recognition, we encode the Gabor(More)
In this paper, we introduce the completed local binary patterns (CLBP) operator for the first time on remote sensing land-use scene classification. To further improve the representation power of CLBP, we propose a multi-scale CLBP (MS-CLBP) descriptor to characterize the dominant texture features in multiple resolutions. Two different kinds of(More)
The fact that image data samples lie on a manifold has been successfully exploited in many learning and inference problems. In this paper we leverage the specific structure of data in order to improve recognition accuracies in general recognition tasks. In particular we propose a novel framework that allows to embed manifold priors into sparse(More)
