This paper presents improvements for face recognition methods that use LBP descriptor as a main technique in encoding micro features of face images. Our improvements are focused on the feature extraction and dimension reduction steps. In feature extraction, we use a variant of Local Binary Pattern (LBP) so-called Elliptical Local Binary Pattern (ELBP), which is more efficient than LBP for extracting micro facial features of the human face. ELBP of one pixel is built by thresholding its gray… CONTINUE READING
