VQ-faces - unsupervised face recognition from image sequences

  title={VQ-faces - unsupervised face recognition from image sequences},
  author={Bisser Raytchev and Hiroshi Murase},
In this paper we propose a new method for unsupervised face recognition – VQ-faces, which operates on a sequential stream of face images and is able to handle both frontal and side-view faces at the same time. The method consists of two parts: in the first part, the VQ-faces are calculated as prototype vectors of local areas in image-space, coding for different face-views (i.e. a “view codebook” is generated), while in the second part the fact that each facesequence corresponds to a single… CONTINUE READING
