Performance Evaluation of Micropattern Representation on Gabor Features for Face Recognition
MetadataShow full item record
Face recognition using micropattern representation has recently received much attention in the computer vision and pattern recognition community. Previous researches demonstrated that micropattern representation based on Gabor features achieves better performance than its direct usage on gray-level images. This paper conducts a comparative performance evaluation of micropattern representations on four forms of Gabor features for face recognition. Three evaluation rules are proposed and observed for a fair comparison. To reduce the high feature dimensionality problem, uniform quantization is used to partition the spatial histograms. The experimental results reveal that: 1) micropattern representation based on Gabor magnitude features outperforms the other three representations, and the performances of the other three are comparable; and 2) micropattern representation based on the combination of Gabor magnitude and phase features performs the best.
