Özet

This paper proposes a novel age estimation method - Global and Local feAture based Age estiMation (GLAAM) - relying on global and local features of facial images. Global features are obtained with Active Appearance Models (AAM). Local features are extracted with regional 2D-DCT (2-dimensional Discrete Cosine Transform) of normalized facial images. GLAAM consists of the following modules: face normalization, global feature extraction with AAM, local feature extraction with 2D-DCT, dimensionality reduction by means of Principal Component Analysis (PCA) and age estimation with multiple linear regression. Experiments have shown that GLAAM outperforms many methods previously applied to the FG-NET database.
