Abstract

Recognition of human faces out of many still images is a research field of fast increasing interest, and a fast and accurate algorithm is still a field to be explored. Our proposed approach in this research is based on Voronoi Diagram and contour linearization. We use the former for we want to locate a probable region of faces and to compensate for some drawbacks of the parametric contour method.
