Making Faces: Image Reduction and Recognition

Presented by: Steve Crow
Time: Thursday 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM

A 350px by 300px image contains 105,000 individual pixels. Comparing each pixel to tell whether or not two images are the same is not efficient. What if we could reduce the number of features, while still maintaining patterns and trends? What if we could perform this recognition by only comparing 25...
