In this paper we apply particle swarm optimization (PSO) feature selection to enhance Hidden Markov Model (HMM) states and parameters for face recognition systems. Ideal Feature selection for face images based on the idea of collaborative behavior of bird flocking to reduce the feature size and hence recognition time complicity. The framework has been(More)
