251. Support Vector Machines Applied to Face Recognition
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6241
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 11/1/1998
Author: P Jonathon Phillips
Abstract: Face recognition is a K class problem, where K is the number of known individuals; and support vector machines (SVMs) are a binary classification method. By reformulating the face recognition problem and re-interpreting the output of the SVM classif ...
