Low Resolution Sparse Binary Face Patterns

  title={Low Resolution Sparse Binary Face Patterns},
  author={Swathikiran Sudhakaran and A. P. James},
Automated recognition of low resolution face images from thumbnails represent a challenging image recognition problem. We propose the sequential fusion of wavelet transform computation, local binary pattern and sparse coding of images to accurately extract facial features from thumbnail images. A minimum distance classifier with Shepard’s similarity measure is used as the classifier. The proposed method shows robust recognition performance when tested on face datasets (Yale B, AR and PUT) when…
