  • We propose a very simple, efficient yet surprisingly effective feature extraction method for face recognition (about 20 lines of Matlab codes), which is mainly inspired by spatial pyramid pooling in generic image classification. We show that, coupled with a linear classifier, features formed by simply pooling local patches over a multi-level pyramid can achieve state-of-the-art performance on face recognition. The simplicity of our feature extraction procedure is demonstrated by the fact that… CONTINUE READING
