Face recognition is one of the most challenging topics in computer vision today. It has applications ranging from security and surveillance to entertainment websites. Face recognition software are useful in banks, airports, and other institutions for screening customers. Germany and Australia have deployed face recognition at borders and customs for Automatic Passport Control. Human face is a dynamic object having high degree of variability in its appearance which makes face recognition a difficult problem in computer vision. In this field, accuracy and speed of identification is a main issue. Many challenges exist for face recognition. The robustness of the system can be obstructed by humans who alter their facial features through wearing colored contact lenses, growing a mustache, putting on intense make-up, etc. Ethical concerns are also related to the process of recording, studying, and recognizing faces. Many individuals do not approve of surveillance systems which take numerous photographs of people who have not authorized this action. The goal of this paper is to evaluate face detection and recognition techniques and provide a complete solution for image based face detection and recognition with higher accuracy, better response rate and an initial step for video surveillance. Solution is proposed based on performed tests on various face rich databases in terms of subjects, pose, emotions and light.
