Project description

Currently, facial recognition is a critical component in biometric identification systems. In this project I will seek to explore the use of filtered back-projections and the radon transform in systems that do facial recognition for extracting useful features for pattern recognition. The project will include determining if there is an optimal angle for doing filtered back-projections in determining particular facial features. The project will include coding in MATLAB.
