Abstract

Face recognition has been widely explored. Many techniques have been applied in various applications. Robustness and reliability become more and more important for these applications especially, in security systems. A new face recognition approach is proposed based on a state-of-the-art classification technique called minimax probability machine (MPM). Engaging the binary MPM technique, we present a multi-class MPM classification for robust face recognition. In experiments, we compare our MPM-based face recognition algorithm with traditional techniques, including neural network and support vector machine. The experimental results show that the MPM-based face recognition technique is competitive and promising for robust face recognition
