Abstract

We present a novel method for face gender classification problem. This method employs the powerful Active Appearance Model (AAM) method for modeling human faces and extracting feature vectors, and the simple but powerful Fuzzy k-Nearest Neighbors (Fuzzy k-NN) method for classification. Experiments for the proposed approach have been conducted on FERET data set and the results show that the proposed method could improve the classification rates.
