From a user’s perspective, face recognition is one of the most desirable biometrics, due to its non-intrusive nature; however, variables such as face expression tend to severely affect recognition rates. We have applied to this problem our previous work on elastically adaptive deformable models to obtain parametric representations of the geometry of selected localized face areas using an annotated face model. We then use wavelet analysis to extract a compact biometric signature, thus allowing us to perform rapid comparisons on either a global or a per area basis. To evaluate the performance of our algorithm, we have conducted experiments using data from the Face Recognition Grand Challenge data corpus, the largest and most established data corpus for face recognition currently available. Our results indicate that our algorithm exhibits high levels of accuracy and robustness, and is not gender biased. In addition, it is minimally affected by facial expressions.
