Many face recognition techniques have been explored and the current trend focuses on three-dimensional techniques. The Eigenface algorithm, however, although rather mathematical, is popular and simple to implement, see for example the following references:
This is a continuation of a project from 2003. At that time the Eigenface algorithm was coded using Matlab software, and we have that code. Because that code may be difficult to work with, it might be easier to find code available on the internet. Therefore, the first objective is to get some version of the Eigenface algorithm up and running. Once we have a working version of the software, we will turn our focus to the demonstration.
