Abstract -
This paper describes the necessity and adopted methods to detect a human face. Since the data is computed by the computer, many algorithms are developed to detect a face. Some of the key challenges for the process of face detection are discussed. Four general face detection methods that are universally used are elaborated with their capabilities, advantages and disadvantages. A rapid approach to detect face developed by viola and jones is explained in brief. The 4 main concepts involved in the viola jones method such as haar features, integral image, Adaboost and classifier cascade are demonstrated.
