Interest in face recognition systems has increased significantly due to the emergence of significant commercial opportunities in surveillance and security applications. In this paper we propose a novel technique to extract features from 3D face representations. In this technique, first the nose tip is automatically located on the range image, then the range(More)
Multicolor fluorescence in situ hybridization (M-FISH) techniques provide color karyotyping that allows simultaneous analysis of numerical and structural abnormalities of whole human chromosomes. Chromosomes are stained combinatorially in M-FISH. By analyzing the intensity combinations of each pixel, all chromosome pixels in an image are classified. Often,(More)
We propose a novel technique to detect feature points from portrait and range representations of the face. In this technique, the appearance of each feature point is encoded using a set of Gabor wavelet responses extracted at multiple orientations and spatial frequencies. A vector of Gabor coefficients, called a jet, is computed at each pixel in the search(More)
Multicolor fluorescence in-situ hybridization (M-FISH) technique provides color karyotyping that allows simultaneous analysis of numerical and structural abnormalities of whole human chromosomes. Currently available M-FISH systems exhibit misclassifications of multiple pixel regions that are often larger than the actual chromosomal rearrangement. This paper(More)
—We introduce a novel multimodal framework for face recognition based on local attributes calculated from range and portrait image pairs. Gabor coefficients are computed at automatically detected landmark locations and combined with powerful anthropometric features defined in the form of geodesic and Euclidean distances between pairs of fiducial points. We(More)
Since the birth of chromosome analysis by the aid of computers, building a fully automated chromosome analysis system has been the ultimate goal. Along with many other challenges, automating chromosome classification and segmentation has been one of the major challenges especially due to overlapping and touching chromosomes. In this paper we present a novel(More)

— In this paper a new framework for personal identity verification using 3-D geometry of the face is introduced. Initially, 3-D facial surfaces are represented by curves extracted from facial surfaces (facial curves). Two alternative facial curves are examined in this research: iso-depth and iso-geodesic curves. Iso-depth curves are produced by intersecting(More)
In this paper, we present a novel identity verification system based on Gabor features extracted from range (3D) representations of faces. Multiple landmarks (fiducials) on a face are automatically detected using these Gabor features. Once the landmarks are identified, the Gabor features on all fidu-cials of a face are concatenated to form a feature vector(More)
This paper presents a new pattern matching method for fiducial mark alignment in a fuzzy space. The membership functions of fuzzy sets are designed by distance transforms, and their levels are set in the fuzzy space for fast matching of a specific fiducial mark. After the fuzzification, a sub-pixel level translation is estimated by a fuzzy similarity(More)
