Abstract

In this paper, a novel approach for 2D face recognition is proposed, based on local feature extraction through a multi-resolution multi-orientation linear method, Steerable Pyramid (SP) and on a feature selection and classification by means of a non-linear method, Adaboost. Many strategies have been elaborated and tested on IV² database including challenging variability such as pose, expression, illumination and quality. To show the robustness of the method, it was compared to five algorithms submitted to the first evaluation campaign on 2D face recognition using IV² database. Proposed algorithm is almost among the two best ones.
