Paper Abstract

Face detection is a fundamental and important research theme in the topic of Pattern Recognition and Computer Vision. Now, remarkable fruits have been achieved. Among these methods, statistics based methods hold a dominant position. In this paper, Adaboost algorithm based on Haar-like features is used to detect faces in complex background. The method combining YCbCr skin model detection and Adaboost is researched, the skin detection method is used to validate the detection results obtained by Adaboost algorithm. It overcomes false detection problem by Adaboost. Experimental results show that nearly all non-face areas are removed, and improve the detection rate.
