On the Deep Hybrid Computational Model for Face Recognition
International Journal of Intelligent Engineering and Systems
This paper aims to develop a recognition system which incorporates a novel fusion from different areas of computational intelligence along with a proposed artificial neuron structure. Our Deep Hybrid Computational Model (DHCM) is a novel aggregation of fuzzy clustering fused with evolutionary searching and a neural network based on a proposed neuron model TROIKA. The deep architecture with evolutionary fuzzy clustering followed by hybrid neural network, built upon novel neuron TROIKA, yields a
... owerful tool for face recognition applications. The proposed TROIKA neuron is based on nonlinear aggregation functions which enables our hybrid neural classifier to inculcate the benefits of its computational power resulting in superior learning and generalization. The proposed TROIKA neuron reduces the complexity of DHCM because very few neurons are sufficient to recognize a subject in database. The experimental results completed on two benchmark face datasets-INDIAN and FERET datasets demonstrated the effectiveness of the proposed model. The performance comparisons revealed the outperformance of (i) TROIKA based model over conventional neuron based model (ii) proposed model over other classification methods.
