Human face image analysis describes several face perceptions tasks, including face detection, race and age classification, face recognition, gender recognition, etc. These attributes have been given attention in recent days in Computer Vision (CV) research community due to large scale applications. Face image analysis plays an important role in real world applications, including augmentation, biometrics, animations, surveillance, human computer interaction and several other applications. Despite these research developments, human face analysis is still difficult and challenging task due to reasons such as poor imagery conditions, complicated facial expressions, complex background etc. Human face image analysis has more complication in the un-constrained and real-world conditions.


With the emergence of deep learning methods face image analysis is excellently addressed by computer vision researchers. This special issue looks forward to novel techniques using deep learning and machine learning, covering some new exiting research findings. We welcome high quality research and review articles to our special issue.

    Abstract Human activity recognition (HAR) can play a vital role in the monitoring of human activities, particularly for healthcare conscious individuals. The accuracy of HAR systems is completely reliant on the extraction of prominent features. Existing methods find it very challenging to extract optimal features due to the dynamic nature of activities, thereby reducing recognition performance. In this paper, we propose a robust feature extraction method for HAR systems based on template matching. Essentially, in this method, we want to associate a template of an activity frame or sub-frame comprising the corresponding silhouette. In this regard, the template is placed on… More >
