Identical twin face recognition is a challenging task due to the existence of a high degree of correlation in overall facial appearance. Commercial face recognition systems exhibit poor performance in differentiating between identical twins under practical conditions. In this paper, we study the usability of facial marks as biometric signatures to distinguish between identical twins. We propose a multiscale automatic facial mark detector based on a gradient-based operator known as the fast… CONTINUE READING
