Scale Invariant Feature Transform (SIFT) has shown to be very powerful for general object detection/recognition. And recently, it has been applied in face recognition. However, the original SIFT algorithm may not be optimal for analyzing face images. In this paper, we analyze the performance of SIFT and study its deficiencies when applied to face recognition. We propose two new approaches: Keypoints-Preserving-SIFT (KPSIFT) which keeps all the initial keypoints as features and Partial… CONTINUE READING
