Abstract -
Face recognition of an individual in a crowd is a challenging issue that has received the deserved attention during current scenario. This is a trivial task for brain, but cumbersome to be imitated artificially. The commonalities in faces does pose a problem on various grounds but features such as skin color, gender differentiate a person from the other. This can be attributed to its various applications in different fields such as content-based image retrieval, video coding, video conferencing, crowd surveillance, and intelligent human–computer interfaces. There has been significant contribution to the solution of this problem by various researchers. This review paper is a study of various techniques being used for face recognition. A face recognition system includes three steps viz face detection, feature extraction and face recognition. Various recognition techniques and descriptions of representative methods have also been covered. The majority of face recognition methods have been developed by scientists with a very technical background such as biometry, pattern recognition and computer vision. The concepts and practical issues relating to the application of each step of a face recognition system and their various strategies are given, without going into technical details.
