In this paper, we propose a new distinctive feature, called joint Haar-like feature, for detecting faces in images. This is based on co-occurrence of multiple Haar-like features. Feature co-occurrence, which captures the structural similarities within the face class, makes it possible to construct an effective classifier. The joint Haar-like feature can be calculated very fast and has robustness against addition of noise and change in illumination. A face detector is learned by stagewise selection of the joint Haar-like features using AdaBoost. A small number of distinctive features achieve both computational efficiency and accuracy. Experimental results with 5, 676 face images and 30,000 nonface images show that our detector yields higher classification performance than Viola and Jones' detector; which uses a single feature for each weak classifier. Given the same number of features, our method reduces the error by 37%. Our detector is 2.6 times as fast as Viola and Jones' detector to achieve the same performance
