Abstract

In this paper, a hybrid system is presented in which a convolutional neural network (CNN) and a Logistic regression classifier (LRC) are combined. A CNN is trained to detect and recognize face images, and a LRC is used to classify the features learned by the convolutional network. Applying feature extraction using CNN to normalized data causes the system to cope with faces subject to pose and lighting variations. LRC which is a discriminative classifier is used to classify the extracted features of face images. Discriminant analysis is more efficient when the normality assumptions are satisfied. The comprehensive experiments completed on Yale face database shows improved classification rates in smaller amount of time.
