We've continued to engage with privacy experts, academics, regulators and people on Facebook about how we use face recognition and the options you have to control it.
For face recognition system, there are a large number of classes but only a few numbers of training samples.

* The proposed PAL face recognition algorithm is composed of partial PCA, the AdaBoost, and the LDA style learners, which makes it extremely reliable for a challenging situation when only one training image per subject/class is available.
However, all these algorithms are continuous and requires a continuous problem, thus the face recognition which is discrete requires to be converted to continuous, or the algorithm is converted to discrete which is time consuming.
Design of the Proposed System: There were two main modules of the system which are face recognition and generation of graphical password.
The letter urged an outright ban on face recognition, which it called "categorically unethical to deploy" because of the technology's privacy implications, technical imperfections and potentially life-threatening biases.
The sources said this project focuses on design and development of a high speed FPGA-based multi-scale face recognition system using Linear Binary Pattern (LBP) features.
Some of these concerns have kept face recognition products from reaching their full potential, but these concerns will fall by the wayside when governments and firms acknowledge that face recognition technology is the best passive and non-intrusive recognition technology available [1,2].
ISLAMABAD: Ministry of Information Technology and Telecommunications said it was in the process of developing a face recognition security system which would be available soon for video surveillance.Official sources at Ignite on Wednesday said it would not only add value to the international research scenario but would also carry a significant contribution to the society.
