Face recognition is a kind of identification and authentication, which mainly use the global-face feature. Nevertheless, the recognition accuracy rate is still not high enough. This research aims to develop a method to increase the efficiency of recognition using global-face feature and local-face feature with 4 parts: the left-eye, right-eye, nose and mouth. We used 115 face images from BioID face dataset for learning and testing. Each-individual person's images are divided into 3 different images for training and 2 different images for testing. The processed histogram based (PHB), principal component analysis (PCA) and two-dimension principal component analysis (2D-PCA) techniques are used for feature extraction. In the recognition process, we used the support vector machine (SVM) for classification combined with particle swarm optimization (PSO) to select the parameters G and C automatically (PSO-SVM). The results show that the proposed method could increase the recognition accuracy rate. © 2012 IEEE.
