Eigenface face recognition system comprises chiefly of two parts. Firstly eigenface basis are created (procedure of constructing eigenfaces). Then, once the eigenfaces are constructed, face recognition or detection of a new face follows. Figure 1 outlines the general flow of the eigenface face recognition system.

Introduction

Figure 3 details these matches considering Amber1 and Andy2 (dashed arrows points to some of the analogous features that may be distinguished from the eigenface).
It was observed (from Figure 1 and 2) that Amber1 have more distinguished features from the eigenface. Thus we can say that the eigenface closely and strongly resembles Amber1. Amber1's reconstructed images (shown in Figure 5 - include the step by step reconstruction of Amber1's face contained in folder "ReconstructedPictures") supports this observation.
Before finding the eigenfaces, however, 'we first need to collect a set of face images. These face images become our database of known faces. We will later determine whether or not an unknown face matches any of these known faces. All face images must be the same size (in pixels), and for our purposes, they must be grayscale (shown in Figure 6), with values ranging from 0 to 255' (Krueger, J, et al, "Obtaining the Eigenface Basis").
Eigenfaces are basically basis vectors for real faces. This can be related straightforwardly to one of the most basic concepts in electrical engineering: Fourier analysis. ...

Inter-racial Face Recognition
The participants were briefed at the beginning of the experiment, and were debriefed after the experiment. Bearing in mind that the issue of inter-racial identification could be sensitive (e.g. participants may feel uncomfortable if they fail to recognize some of the faces) the participants were told about the possibility for them to withdraw their data whenever they wish, and also that, if they…

While it is increasingly accepted by a growing number of policy makers that action needs to be taken immediately to address climate change, it is politically difficult to do so when the impacts, in most parts of the world, are still insignificant.

Models of Object Recognition
This is simply 'object recognition'. When a lion approaches us, we realise through prior knowledge that the animal is known to be ferocious, dangerous and sometimes doesn't hesitate to kill. With this information we are able to make instant decisions as to the next course of action. A meal at a dinner table tells us it is edible and we can approach it. This 'spatial localisation' is the…

Evidently, applicability of this approach…
