Paper Abstract

Individual facial features such as the eyes or nose may not be as important to human face recognition as the overall pattern capturing a more holistic encoding of the face. This paper describes " face space" a subspace of the space of all possible images which can be described as linear combinations of a small number of characteristic face-like images. The construction of face space and its use in the detection and identification of faces is explained in the context of a working face recognition system. The effects of illumination changes scale orientation and the image background are discussed.
