Abstract: In the domain of face recognition, many methods are used to reduce the dimensionality of the subspace in which faces are presented. Recently, Random Projection (RP) has emerged as a powerful method for dimensionality reduction. It represents a computationally simple and efficient method that preserves the structure of the data without introducing very significant distortion. Our focus in this paper is to investigate the dimensionality reduction offered by RP and perform an artificial intelligent system for face recognition using back propagation neural network. Experiments show that projecting the data onto a random lower-dimensional subspace yields results and give an acceptable face recognition rate.
