Abstract

In this paper, we propose age and gender estimation system by vairous features. Age and gender has a lot of characteristics. These characteristics are one of the difficult cognitive process in human interaction. If we can extract the important feature of this cognitive process, it is considered that the age and gender estimation by the machine becomes possible. Therefore, we propose a method of age and gender feature extraction and estimation using the face image. In this paper, the age of the face means apparent-age that is based on the human perception of age. Moreover, person's aging and gender difference appear in the faces. For example, the pigmented spot, the wrinkle, sagging skin, shape, color of skin, and so on. Thus, we extract these several features for age and gender estimation. Furthermore, we estimate a continuous age and gender using a neural network (NN).
