The paper presents a novel approach for solving face recognition problem. We combine Gabor filters and Principal Component Analysis (PCA) to extract feature vectors; then we apply Support Vector Machine (SVM), the most powerful discriminative method, and AdaBoost, a meta-algorithm, for classification. Experiments for the proposed method have been conducted on two public face database AT&T and FERET. The results show that the proposed method could improve the classification rates
