Boosting has been shown to be an effective technique for face detection. This paper explores the implementation of a real-time object detection system as described by Viola and Jones. The system is initially tested on the problem of face detection and then applied to the problem of aircraft detection. Initial results show that detecting aircraft with high accuracy comes at the cost of many false detections. Reducing the number of false positives requires more training and possibly more complex… CONTINUE READING
