In this paper, a simple and fast algorithm was proposed to detect face. Firstly, some interest points marking skin regions were searched by only using simple chrominance Cr information instead of simultaneously using chrominance Cr and Cb. And then, a conventional and popular AdaBoost algorithm was employed to make a decision whether around the detected interest points was there face and then located the face if there was. 400 face patches were translated into YCbCr space, and it was found from… CONTINUE READING
