Paper Abstract

This paper combines the template-based method and color-based scheme to construct an adaptive skin-color model for human face detection in news videos. A heuristic rule-based decision tree is then employed to verify the resulting skin-color regions. The skin-color model comes from the sample pixels from the target video shots, so well tuned to adapt to various videos. It is a general scheme for color-segmentation, not depend on any pre-defined skin-color range. Our experiments shows that the face detection performance has been improved greatly, compared with the pure template based face detector. The face retrieval module is based on the Self-Eigenface method, where the Self-Eigenface space is constructed from the pseudo frontal faces obtained by region tracking.
