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.
