Face recognition using various scales of discriminant color space transform
MetadataShow full item record
Research on color face recognition in the existing literature is aimed to establish a color space that can have the most of the discriminative information from the original data. This mainly includes optimal combination of different color components from the original color space. Recently proposed discriminate color space (DCS) is theoretically optimal for classification, in which one seeks a set of optimal coefficients in terms of linear combinations of the R, G and B components (based on a discriminate criterion). This work proposes an innovative block-wise DCS (BWDCS) method, which allows each block of the image to be in a distinct DCS. This is an interesting alternative to the methods relying on converting whole image to DCS. This idea is evaluated with four appearance-based subspace state-of-the-art methods on five different publicly available databases including the well-known FERET and FRGC databases. Experimental results show that the performance of these four gray-scale based methods can be improved by 17% on average when they are used with the proposed color space.
