Face recognition using a DCT-HMM approach
A transform domain approach coupled with Hidden Markov Model (HMM) for face recognition is presented. JPEG kind of strategy is employed to transform input subimage for training HMMs. DCT transformed vectors efface images are used to train ergodic HMM and later for recognition. ORL face database of 40 subjects with 10 images per subject is used to evaluate the performance of the proposed method. 5 images per subject are used for training and the rest 5 for recognition. This method has an accuracy of 99.5%. The results, to the best of knowledge of the authors, give the best recognition percentage as compared to any other method reported so far on ORL face database.
