FACE ANALYSIS FOR HUMAN COMPUTER INTERACTION APPLICATIONS

Javier Ruiz-del-Solar, Rodrigo Verschae, Paul Vallejos, Mauricio Correa

Abstract

A face analysis system is presented and employed in the construction of human-computer interfaces. This system is based on three modules (detection, tracking and classification) which are integrated and used to detect, track and classify faces in dynamic environments. A face detector, an eye detector and face classifier are built using a unified learning framework. The most interesting aspect of this learning framework is the possibility of building accurate and robust classification/detection systems that have a high processing speed. The tracking system is based on extended Kalman filters, and when used together with the face detector, high detection rates with a very low false positive rate are obtained. The classification module is used to classify the faces’ gender. The three modules are evaluated on standard databases and, compared to state of the art systems, better or competitive results are obtained. The whole system is and the system is implemented in AIBO robots.
