Advancement and affordability is leading to the popularity of plastic surgery procedures. Facial plastic surgery can be reconstructive to correct facial feature anomalies or cosmetic to improve the appearance. Both corrective as well as cosmetic surgeries alter the original facial information to a large extent thereby posing a great challenge for face(More)
This paper presents an efficient algorithm for matching sketches with digital face images. The algorithm extracts discriminating information present in local facial regions at different levels of granularity. Both sketches and digital images are decomposed into multi-resolution pyramid to conserve high frequency information which forms the discriminating(More)
The performance of iris recognition is affected if iris is captured at a distance. Further, images captured in visible spectrum are more susceptible to noise than if captured in near infrared spectrum. This research proposes periocular biometrics as an alternative to iris recognition if the iris images are captured at a distance. We propose a novel(More)
One of the important cues in solving crimes and apprehending criminals is matching sketches with digital face images. This paper presents an automated algorithm to extract discriminating information from local regions of both sketches and digital face images. Structural information along with minute details present in local facial regions are encoded using(More)
Widespread acceptability and use of biometrics for person authentication has instigated several techniques for evading identification. One such technique is altering facial appearance using surgical procedures that has raised a challenge for face recognition algorithms. Increasing popularity of plastic surgery and its effect on automatic face recognition(More)
Newborn swapping and abduction is a global problem and traditional approaches such as ID bracelets and footprinting do not provide the required level of security. This paper introduces the concept of using face recognition for identifying newborns and presents an automatic face recognition algorithm. The proposed multiresolution algorithm extracts Speeded(More)
Face recognition algorithms are generally trained for matching high-resolution images and they perform well for similar resolution test data. However, the performance of such systems degrades when a low-resolution face image captured in unconstrained settings, such as videos from cameras in a surveillance scenario, are matched with high-resolution gallery(More)
Numerous parameters control the long-term performance of a total hip joint arthroplasty. The articulating motions between the femoral and the acetabular components produce wear debris in a hip implant. Surface roughness, clearance, coefficient of friction and sliding distance are found to be contributing parameters that affect wear rates. Wear produced in a(More)
