An improved face detection and recognition method based on information of skin color is proposed in this paper. Color is a powerful fundamental cue of human faces. Skin color detection is first performed on the input color image to reduce the computational complexity. Morphological operations are used and it gives a prior knowledge for face detection. Face is detected by Adaboost algorithm. AdaBoost learning is used to choose a small number of weak classifiers and to combine them into a strong classifier deciding whether an image is a face or not. Then, by using principal component analysis(PCA) algorithm, a specific face can be recognized by comparing the principal components of the current face to those of the known individuals in a facial database built in advance.
