ABSTRACT
We present a probabilistic method to detect human
faces using a mixture of factor analyzers. One char-
acteristic of this mixture model is that it concurrently
performs clustering and, within each cluster, local di-
mensionality reduction. A wide range of face images
including ones in di erent poses, with di erent expres-
sions and under di erent lighting conditions are used
as the training set to capture the variations of human
faces. In order to t the mixture model to the sam-
ple face images, the parameters are estimated using an
EM algorithm. Experimental results show that faces
in di erent poses, with di erent facial expressions, and
under di erent lighting conditions are accurately de-
