This work proposes a classification-based face detection method using Gabor filter features. Considering the desirable characteristics of spatial locality and orientation selectivities of the Gabor filter, we design four filters for extracting facial features from the local image. The feature vector based on Gabor filters is used as the input of the classifier, which is a polynomial neural network (PNN) on a reduced feature subspace learned by principal component analysis (PCA). The effectiveness of the proposed method is demonstrated by the experimental results on testing a large number of images and the comparison with the state-of-the-art method.
