Abstract

We present a novel method to optimize the discrimination ability and noise robustness of composite filters. This method is based on the iterative preprocessing of training images which can extract boundary and detailed feature information of authentic training faces, thereby improving the peak-to-correlation energy (PCE) ratio of authentic faces and to be immune to intra-class variance and noise interference. By adding the training images directly, one can obtain a composite template with high discrimination ability and robustness for face recognition task. The proposed composite correlation filter does not involve any complicated mathematical analysis and computation which are often required in the design of correlation algorithms. Simulation tests have been conducted to check the effectiveness and feasibility of our proposal. Moreover, to assess robustness of composite filters using receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curves, we devise a new method to count the true positive and false positive rates for which the difference between PCE and threshold is involved.
