This could be a critical security weakness, especially for high-security systems because it enables an impostor to access the system resources until the initial user logs out.

We present a novel approach for estimating light sources from a single image of a scene that is illuminated by major near point light sources, a few directional light sources and ambient light. We propose to employ a pair of reference spheres as light probes and introduce the difference sphere that we acquire by differencing the intensities of two image(More)
One of the major challenges encountered by face recognition lies in the difficulty of handling arbitrary poses variations. While different approaches have been developed for face recognition across pose variations, many methods either require manual landmark annotations or assume the face poses to be known. These constraints prevent many face recognition(More)
