Face Recognition and Aging

W. Sun, M.D. Levine

Suppose we wish to search an image database to answer such questions as ``Find all pictures of Frank Sinatra in the database''. A major issue has to do with recognizing individual faces as the same, notwithstanding the normal aging process. We will study the modeling of the aging process and include it in a face recognition program. One major issue is the collection of data. We intend to first obtain it from other sources and later to develop our own graphics aging software. We will then test the developed theories and methods on a series of images of actors who have had long film or television careers.
