Automatic gender classification is an interesting and challenging task that impacts important applications in biometrics, security, surveillance, and human-computer interaction systems. This paper presents an effective facial feature descriptor based on the directional ternary pattern (DTP) for gender classification. The DTP operator encodes the texture information of a local neighborhood by labeling the edge response values in all eight directions around a pixel with three different levels… CONTINUE READING
