Abstract: The objective of this project is to identify the gender of a person by looking at his/her photograph. This is a case of supervised learning where the algorithm is first trained on a set of female and male faces, and then used to classify new data. We have not taken genders other than Male and Female into account. A preliminary algorithm is run to make sure that an image is that of a human before classification begins.
Keywords: Images Faces Learning Classification Algorithm.
Scope of the Article: Image Security
