Example for using Bob to create face verification systems

Project Description

Note

If you are reading this page through our GitHub portal and not through PyPI, note the development tip of the package may not be stable or become unstable in a matter of moments.

Go to http://pypi.python.org/pypi/bob.example.faceverify to download the latest stable version of this package.

This example demonstrates how to use Bob to build different face verification systems. It includes examples with three different complexities:

  • A simple eigenface based example
  • An example using Gabor jets and a Gabor-phase based similarity function
  • An example building an UBM/GMM model on top of DCT blocks.

To use this example, you will require Bob and the AT&T database. If you do not have a Bob version yet, you can get it from http://www.idiap.ch/software/bob.

If you already have installed Bob, please make sure that you have the version 1.0.5, otherwise the example won’t work.

The AT&T image database is quite small, but sufficient to show how the face verification methods work. Still, the results may not be meaningful. One good thing about the AT&T database is that it is freely available. You can download it from http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/research/dtg/attarchive/facedatabase.html.

Finally, to download this package, please open a shell, go to a directory of your choice and call:

$ pip install bob.example.faceverify

To generate the Documentation, please further go into the “doc” directory and call:

$ make html
$ firefox html/index.html

(or use any other browser of your choice). After you did this, please read the documentation and try to execute the examples.
