MATLAB 2012a: Face detection 7

Posted by Doug Hull,

The new release of MATLAB is here!

I was looking through it, and one thing that caught my eye the most was some face detection algorithms have been added. This is great because I get questions about it a fair amount. I am lending the blog to my friend and colleague, Bruce, to show you what is new in this area of MATLAB.

ps. I just watched this video with someone in the office. His response: “I spent one and a half years of grad school trying to do that!”

Hello, I was wondering if I can get access to the algorithm's code. I would like to see the exact implementation of the algorithm in contrast to just using it as a function. Thank you!

https://www.mathworks.com/help/vision/ref/vision.cascadeobjectdetector-class.html It says we use Viola-Jones, but I don't think the code is accessable. What are you trying to find out?
Colin replied on : 3 of 7
Would the Viola-Jones algorithm be able to detect plant leaves and importantly, would it be able to link an identity to each one? Say there were a mixture of 3 species with slightly different leaf shapes, could it detect what wads a leaf and then go on to detect what was species A, species B, etc. What about variation within leaves... just as there are variations within faces? Many thanks. I am new to this but this is a great site!

Sorry, I do not have access to this data set, but it looks likes this image: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/9300379/automatic-face-detection-using-matlab I would try these examples: http://www.mathworks.com/help/vision/examples/face-detection-and-tracking-using-the-klt-algorithm.html http://www.mathworks.com/help/vision/examples/face-detection-and-tracking-using-camshift.html

yeah, its amazing and i got it completely. But, can we do image recognition at the same time? if yes, than how please help me.
