MPEG-7 DESCRIPTORS BASED CLASSIFIER FOR FACE/NON-FACE DETECTION

Malek Nadil, Abdenour Labed, Feryel Souami

Abstract

In this paper we present a high level Face/Non-face classifier which can be integrated to a content based image retrieving system. It will help to extract semantics from images prior to their retrieving. This two-steps retrieval allows reducing effects of semantic gaps on the performance of existing systems. To construct our classifier, we exploit a standardized MPEG-7 low level descriptor. Experiments performed on images taking from two data bases, showed that our technique outperforms others presented in the literature.
