    Face recognition...

    Hi,

    I'm currently developing a face recognition system which will detect and extract human faces detected within a larger colour picture. This is as part of a larger project which should be able to identify the people in a picture by analysis of their facial features.

    I'm looking for a large collection of digital colour images of people's faces, which are as diverse as possible (i.e. different sizes, layouts, nationalities, skin colours etc.), with which I can train and test the detection part of this system. If anyone knows of such a collection of images, I'd be very grateful.

    Thanks,
    Richard Hayden. (rahaydenuk@yahoo.co.uk)

    If you use the Google image search, you should be able to find a bunch of pictures... it might be easiest just to look around on the internet for group shots and such.
    Away.

    Go to www.hotornot.com

    Most of the people are ugly, but there are a lot face-pictures.

    I don't understand. These people have to know they're ugly. Why
    are they putting their pictures on the internet? The internet is a
    mean, rough, unforgiving place. You have be tough to survive out
    here... tough like me. They're just going to feel bad once they see
    their score. I try to help out and give the ugly people 10, but
    when three thousand people had already given them a 2, that
    10 that I gave just doesn't help their average.

    I also give the pretty people a 1. How dare they? They're so vein.

    *whistles innocently* So, ethic, what's the address of your picture, and what's your score?
    Away.
