We propose a complete scheme for face detection and recognition. We have used a Bayesian classifier for face detection and a nearest neighbor approach for face classification. To improve the performance of the classifier, a feature extraction algorithm based on a modified nonparametric discriminant analysis has also been implemented. The complete scheme has been tested in a real-time environment achieving encouraging results. We also show a new boosting scheme based on adapting the features to the misclassified examples, achieving also interesting results.
