In this paper we describe a face detection algorithm, the key idea being to determine roughly the skin regions of a 2D color image and searching for eyes through them. The technic is based on a Support Vector Machine trained to separate sub images representing eyes from others. The algorithm can be used in face image database management systems both as a first step of a person identification, and to discriminate the images on the basis of the number of faces in them.
