Abstract

In many social interactions, it is important to correctly recognize the gender. Researches have addressed this issue based on facial images, ear images and gait. In this paper, we present an approach for gender classification using facial images based upon sparse representation and Basis Pursuit. In sparse representation, the training data is used to develop a dictionary based on extracted features. Classification is achieved by representing the extracted features of the test data using the dictionary. For this purpose, basis pursuit is used to find the best representation by minimizing the l1 norm. In this work, Gabor filters are used for feature extraction. Experimental results are conducted on the FERET data set and obtained results are compared with other works in this area. The results show improvement in gender classification over existing methods.
