In this paper, we present a novel approach of face identification by formulating the pattern recognition problem in terms of linear regression. Using a fundamental concept that patterns from a single-object class lie on a linear subspace, we develop a linear model representing a probe image as a linear combination of class-specific galleries. The inverse(More)
In this paper we address the problem of illumination invariant face recognition. Using a fundamental concept that in general, patterns from a single object class lie on a linear subspace [2], we develop a linear model representing a probe image as a linear combination of class-specific galleries. In the presence of noise, the well-conditioned inverse(More)
Inexpensive structured light sensors can capture rich information from indoor scenes, and scene labeling problems provide a compelling opportunity to make use of this information. In this paper we present a novel conditional random field (CRF) model to effectively utilize depth information for semantic labeling of indoor scenes. At the core of the model, we(More)
We propose in this paper a model based technique for the detection of human faces from rich still color images. Traditionally, color images are represented in the RGB color space. RGB space, however, is not only a 3-dimensional space but also includes brightness or luminance which is not a reliable criterion for skin separation. To avoid the effect of(More)
With the ever-increasing security threats, the problem of invulnerable authentication systems is becoming more acute. Traditional means of securing a facility essentially depend on strategies corresponding to “what you have” or “what you know”, for example smart cards, keys and passwords. These systems however can easily be fooled. Passwords for example,(More)
In this article, we propose a novel method to derive exact closed-form ergodic capacity and outage probability expressions for correlated Rayleigh fading channels with receive diversity. Unlike the existing works, the proposed method employ a simple approach for the capacity and outage analysis for receiver diversity channels operating at different(More)

In this paper, speaker identification using the Dempster-Shafer theory of evidence is discussed. The objective is to use the complementary information present from different classifiers to fuse the classification results into a single decision. Here, we use a decreasing function of the distance (of the classifiers) as our belief function. In the case of(More)
