ABSTRACT
We provide a novel search technique which uses a hierarchical model and a mutual information gain heuristic to efficiently prune the search space when localizing faces in images. We show exponential gains in computation over traditional sliding window approaches, while keeping similar performance levels.
INDEX TERMS
Active testing, face detection, visual search, coarse-to-fine search, face localization.
