Abstract:Finally, we show how these theoretical developments lead to simple, scalable, and robust algorithms for face recognition in the presence of varying illumination and occlusion. The idea is extremely simple: seek the sparsest representation of the test image as a linear combination of training images plus a sparse error term due to occlusion. In addition to achieving excellent performance on public databases, this approach sheds light on several important issues in face recognition, such as the choice of features and robustness to corruption and occlusion.
