—This paper presents a simple yet effective approach for 3D face recognition. A novel 3D facial surface representation, namely Multi-Scale Local Binary Pattern (MS-LBP) Depth Map, is proposed, which is used along with the Shape Index (SI) Map to increase the distinctiveness of smooth range faces. Scale Invariant Feature Transform (SIFT) is introduced to(More)

This paper addresses the problem of synthesizing an artificial visual light (VIS) facial image from near-infrared (NIR) input. After extensively assessing photic characteristics of tissues at human skin surface, we propose a framework for this task. Firstly, we take the quotient images for training and reconstruction , so that information related to face(More)
