This paper describes a fuzzy theory based face detection system. We use a perceptually uniform chromatic system to represent color information for increasing the robustness of our system. We build two models that describe skin and hair color based on the fuzzy theory, and use them to estimate the skin color likeness and the hair likeness. We treat the appearance of faces in images as the combination of a skin part and a hair part, and model it with several 2-dimensional patterns. Then we detect… Expand
