In this project, a fast and efficient gender and age estimation system based on facial images is developed. There are many methods have been proposed in the literature for the age estimation and gender classification. However, all of them have still disadvantage such as not complete reflection about face structure, face texture. This technique applies to both face alignment and recognition and significantly improves three aspects. First, we introduce shape description for face model. Second,

Finally, we classified the gender and age based on the association of two methods: geometric feature based method and Principal Component Analysis (PCA) method for improving the efficiency of facial feature extraction stage.
