Brain Inspired Face Recognition: A Computational Framework

  title={Brain Inspired Face Recognition: A Computational Framework},
  author={Pinaki Roy Chowdhury and Angad Wadhwa and Nikhil Tyagi},
This paper presents a new proposal of an efficient computational model of face recognition which uses cues from the distributed face recognition mechanism of the brain, and by gathering engineering equivalent of these cues from existing literature. Three distinct and widely used features – Histogram of Oriented Gradients (HOG), Local Binary Patterns (LBP), and Principal components (PCs) extracted from target images are used in a manner which is simple, and yet effective. The HOG and LBP… 


Face recognition by independent component analysis
Independent component analysis (ICA), a generalization of PCA, was used, using a version of ICA derived from the principle of optimal information transfer through sigmoidal neurons, which was superior to representations based on PCA for recognizing faces across days and changes in expression.
Facial expression recognition and histograms of oriented gradients: a comprehensive study
A comprehensive study on the application of histogram of oriented gradients (HOG) descriptor in the FER problem is proposed, highlighting as this powerful technique could be effectively exploited for this purpose.
Face recognition with support vector machines: global versus component-based approach
A component-based method and two global methods for face recognition and evaluate them with respect to robustness against pose changes are presented and the component system clearly outperformed both global systems on all tests.
Robust Face Recognition via Sparse Representation
This work considers the problem of automatically recognizing human faces from frontal views with varying expression and illumination, as well as occlusion and disguise, and proposes a general classification algorithm for (image-based) object recognition based on a sparse representation computed by C1-minimization.
Linear Regression for Face Recognition
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, and introducing a novel Distance-based Evidence Fusion (DEF) algorithm.
Face Recognition Using Nearest Feature Space Embedding
A nearest feature space embedding (called NFS embedding) algorithm is proposed for face recognition that embeds the distance between a point and the nearest feature line (NFL) or the NFS is embedded in the transformation through the discriminant analysis.

This work proposes a pose-adaptive matching method that uses pose-specific classifiers to deal with different pose combinations of the matching face pair, and finds that a simple normalization mechanism after PCA can further improve the discriminative ability of the descriptor.
