Biometric Uncorrelated Face Recognition Using Unsupervised Learning

M.Tech(DECS) Student, DR.K.V Subba Reddy College of Engineering For Women,Kurnool, Andhra Pradesh, India.

In this paper we developed a new dimensionality reduction method, named Biomimetic Uncorrelated Locality Discriminate Projection (BULDP), for face recognition. It is based on unsupervised discriminate projection and two human bionic characteristics: principle of homology continuity and principle of heterogeneous similarity. With these two human bionic characteristics, we propose a novel adjacency coefficient representation, which does not only capture the category information between different samples, but also reflects the continuity between similar samples and the similarity between different samples. By applying this new adjacency coefficient into the unsupervised discriminant projection, it can be shown that we can transform the original data space into an uncorrelated discriminant subspace. A detailed solution of the proposed BULDP is given based on singular value decomposition. Moreover, we also develop a nonlinear version of our BULDP using kernel functions for nonlinear dimensionality reduction. The performance of the proposed algorithms is evaluated and compared with the state-of-the-art methods on four public benchmarks for face recognition. Experimental results show that the proposed BULDP method and its nonlinear version achieve much competitive recognition performance..

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
