—Advancement and affordability is leading to 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 great extent thereby posing a great challenge for face(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 that extracts 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(More)
• Newborn babies are identified using ID bracelets and foot prints to prevent swapping and abduction. There are several instances where these identification measures have not worked. This research introduces the concept of using face recognition for identifying newborns and presents an automatic face recognition algorithm. • In the United States, every year(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)
In an operational biometric verification system, changes in biometric data over a period of time can affect the classification accuracy. Online learning has been used for updating the classifier decision boundary. However, this requires labeled data that is only available during new enrolments. This paper presents a biometric classifier update algorithm in(More)
