Abstract

The study of human recognition is becoming more and more popular. For these tasks, there is need to cut off the facial region from the image. Here we propose a method which can automatically cut off the full human facial region from an image with natural background by the use of Genetic Algorithm and SNAKES. The use of Genetic Algorithm enables to search globally for the approximate size and position of the face and SNAKES enables to search robustly from this approximate contour to a more specific contour.
