Face detection in mobile phones using Co-occurrence of adjacent Local Binary Patterns

Abstract

This paper investigates a novel combination of Co-occurrence of adjacent Local Binary Patterns histogram and Local Binary Patterns feature extraction methods for face detection in mobile phone applications. In particular, Co-occurrence of adjacent Local Binary Patterns histogram feature extraction provides exceptionally high discriminative power in face/non-face classification and hence is used to ensure the high accuracy of the proposed face detector. Local Binary Patterns feature extraction has low computation complexity and is thus used to reduce the overall processing speed. In the conducted face detection experiments, the proposed face detector yields comparable or better performance as well as faster computation speed than the existing best methods.
