2002)



A computer vision system for recognition of


3
-
dimensional moving faces using GAT model

(neural network
G

T
ree)



A$850,000 supported by SITA (Society Internationale
de Telecommunications Aeronautiques)


A$40,500 supported by Australia Research Council


A$78,000 supported by Australia Department of
Education.


US$160,000 supported by USA National Research
Council.





Why Develop FACEFLOW ?




-
To use new generation computer technique,
artificial neural network, for developing information
systems.

-
No real world face recognition system is running in
the world.

-
Big security market

-
Biometric system

-
ID card identification system

-
Car and house security system




What Approved

Artificial Neural Network Techniques can :


-
Can recognition one face in the laboratory
using less than 1 second


-
Currently can recognition about 1000 faces

Dr. Ming Zhang




Hornik, K.
(1991)


“Whenever the activation function is
continuous, bounded and nonconstant, then
for an arbitrary compact subset X R
n
,
standard multilayer feedforward networks
can approximate any continuous function on
X arbitrarily well with respect to uniform
distance, provided that sufficiently many
hidden units are available”






Leshno, M.

(1993)


“A standard multilayer feedforward network
with a locally bounded activation function
can approximate any continuous function to
any degree of accuracy if and only if the
network’s activation function is not a
polynomial”






Zhang, Ming

(1995)


“ Consider a neural network piecewise function
group, in which each member is a standard
multilayer feedforward neural network, and
which has locally boundded, piecewise
continuous (rather than polynomial)
activation function and threshold. Eash such
group can approximate any king of piecewise
continuous function, and to any degree of
accuracy”
