Gabor-HOG Features based Face Recognition Scheme

By Hamid Ouanan, Mohammed Ouanan and Brahim Aksasse


Extraction of invariant features is the core of Face RecognitionSystems (FRS). This work proposes a novel feature extractor-fusion scheme using two powerful feature descriptor known as Gabor Filters (GFs) and Histogram of Oriented Gradient (HOG), which the face image is filtered with the multiscale multiresolution Gabor filter bank to generate multiple Gabor magnitude images (GMIs), then the down-sampled GMIs and apply Histogram of Oriented Gradient to form the features. The experimental results on the FERET face database show the effectiveness of our methods
