Face recognition using fractal codes
Ebrahimpour-Komleh, Hossein, Chandran, Vinod, & Sridharan, Sridha (2001) Face recognition using fractal codes. In Proceedings of International Conference on Image Processing 2001, IEEE, Thessaloniki, Greece.
In this paper we propose a new method for face recognition using fractal codes. Fractal codes represent local contractive, affine transformations which when iteratively applied to range-domain pairs in an arbitrary initial image result in a fixed point close to a given image. The transformation parameters such as brightness offset, contrast factor, orientation and the address of the corresponding domain for each range are used directly as features in our method. Features of an unknown face image are compared with those pre-computed for images in a database. There is no need to iterate, use fractal neighbor distances or fractal dimensions for comparison in the proposed method. This method is robust to scale change, frame size change and rotations as well as to some noise, facial expressions and blur distortion in the image
