Many recent works have attempted to improve object recognition by exploiting temporal dynamics, an intrinsic property of video sequences. In this paper, a new spatio-temporal hierarchical agglomerative clustering (STHAC) method is proposed for automatic extraction of face exemplars for face recognition in video sequences. Two variants of STHAC are presented — a global variety that unifies spatial and temporal distances between points, and a local variety that introduces perturbation of… CONTINUE READING
