Automatic Classification of Single Facial Images
December 1999 (vol. 21 no. 12)
pp. 1357-1362

Abstract—We propose a method for automatically classifying facial images based on labeled elastic graph matching, a 2D Gabor wavelet representation, and linear discriminant analysis. Results of tests with three image sets are presented for the classification of sex, “race,” and expression. A visual interpretation of the discriminant vectors is provided.
