In this paper, we investigate the possibility of using limited feature points (shape landmarks) from 3-D human body shapes to recognize the gender of human beings. Several machine learning algorithms and feature extraction algorithms (principal component analysis and linear discriminant analysis) are investigated and analyzed in this paper. Experimental results on a large dataset containing 2484 3-D shape models show that limited feature points (shape landmarks) can be used for gender… CONTINUE READING
