Facial recognition systems are computer-based security systems that are able to automatically detect and identify human faces. Facial recognition has gained increasing interest in the recent decade. Over the years there have been several techniques being developed to achieve high success rate of accuracy in the identification and verification of individuals for authentication in security systems. This project experiments the concept of neural network for facial recognition that can differentiate and recognize face of image. This face recognition system begins with image pre-processing and then the output image is trained using Fuzzy c-means clustering (FCM) algorithm. FCM network learns by training the inputs, calculating the error between the real output and target output, and propagates back the error to the network to modify the weights until the desired output is obtained. After training the network, the recognition system is tested to ensure that the system can recognize the pattern of each face image. The purpose of this project is to recognize face of image for the recognition analysis using Neural Network and capture the brainwaves of the emotion recognition. This project is mainly concern with facial recognition systems using purely image processing technique.
