Exemplary Face Verification Experiments Using Bob

This example demonstrates how to use Bob to build three different face verification systems. It includes examples with three different complexities:

  • A simple eigenface based example
  • An example using Gabor jets in a grid graph
  • An example building an UBM/GMM model on top of DCT blocks.

The face verification experiments are executed using the protocols for the AT&T database implemented in bob.db.atnt. However, the code is set up such that it will work with any other of the Databases that Implement the Database Interface as well.


The AT&T database is a toy database that is perfectly useful for this example, but not to publish scientific papers.
