Learning a Backpropagation Neural Network With Error Function Based on Bhattacharyya Distance for Face Recognition

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Aug. 2012

In this paper, a color face recognition system is developed to identify human faces using Back propagation neural network. The architecture we adopt is All-Class-in-One-Network, where all the classes are placed in a single network. To accelerate the learning process we propose the use of Bhattacharyya distance as total error to train the network. In the experimental section we compare how the algorithm converge using the mean square error and the Bhattacharyya distance. Experimental results indicated that the image faces can be recognized by the proposed system effectively and swiftly.
