In this paper, illuminated by the great success of universal background modeling (UBM) for speech/speaker recognition, we present a new algorithm for face recognition. On the one hand, we encode each face image as an ensemble of X-Y patches, which integrate both local appearance and shape information. These X-Y patch representation provides the possibility to compare two spatially different patches, and consequently alleviates the requirement of exact pixel- wise alignment. On the other hand… CONTINUE READING
