Facial Multi-characteristics And Applications, Hardback Book


What features or information can we observe from a face, and how can these information help us to understand the person concerned, in terms of their well-being and what can we learn about and from each given feature?

This book answers these questions by first dividing a face's multiple characteristics into two main categories: original (or physiological) features and features that change over a lifetime.

The first category, original features, may be further divided into two sub-classes: features special (or unique) to an individual, and features common to a particular group.

The second, changed features, can also be subdivided into two groups: features altered due to disease or features altered by other external factors.

From these four sub-categories, four different applications - facial identification using original and special features; beauty analysis using original common features; facial diagnosis by disease changed features; and expression recognition through affect-changed features - are identified.The book will benefit researchers, professionals, and graduate students working in the field of computer vision, pattern recognition, security/clinical practice, and beauty analysis, and will also be useful for interdisciplinary research.
