Kernel Learning of Histogram of Local Gabor Phase Patterns for Face Recognition
EURASIP Journal on Advances in Signal Processing volume 2008, Article number: 469109 (2008)
This paper proposes a new face recognition method, named kernel learning of histogram of local Gabor phase pattern (K-HLGPP), which is based on Daugman's method for iris recognition and the local XOR pattern (LXP) operator. Unlike traditional Gabor usage exploiting the magnitude part in face recognition, we encode the Gabor phase information for face classification by the quadrant bit coding (QBC) method. Two schemes are proposed for face recognition. One is based on the nearest-neighbor classifier with chi-square as the similarity measurement, and the other makes kernel discriminant analysis for HLGPP (K-HLGPP) using histogram intersection and Gaussian-weighted chi-square kernels. The comparative experiments show that K-HLGPP achieves a higher recognition rate than other well-known face recognition systems on the large-scale standard FERET, FERET200, and CAS-PEAL-R1 databases.
