Most face recognition systems focus on photo-based face recognition. In this paper, we present a face recognition system based on face sketches. The proposed system contains two elements: pseudo-sketch synthesis and sketch recognition. The pseudo-sketch generation method is based on local linear preserving of geometry between photo and sketch images, which(More)
In this paper, a new unsupervised learning algorithm, namely Nonnegative Discriminative Feature Selection (NDFS), is proposed. To exploit the discriminative information in unsupervised scenarios, we perform spectral clustering to learn the cluster labels of the input samples, during which the feature selection is performed simultaneously. The joint learning(More)
In this paper, we present a novel face detection approach using improved local binary patterns (ILBP) as facial representation. ILBP feature is an improvement of LBP feature that considers both local shape and texture information instead of raw grayscale information and it is robust to illumination variation. We model the face and non-face class using(More)
We propose an image classification framework by leveraging the non-negative sparse coding, low-rank and sparse matrix decomposition techniques (LR-ScSPM). First, we propose a new non-negative sparse coding along with max pooling and spatial pyramid matching method (ScSPM) to extract local features’ information in order to represent images, where(More)
Image annotation has been an active research topic in recent years due to its potential impact on both image understanding and web image retrieval. Existing relevance-model-based methods perform image annotation by maximizing the joint probability of images and words, which is calculated by the expectation over training images. However, the semantic gap and(More)
