A fast and non-trainable facial recognition system for schools

Kazeem Oyebode, Kingsley Chiwuike Ukaoha


Deep learning models have been at the forefront of facial recognition because they deliver improved classification accuracy over traditional ones. Regardless, deep learning models require an extensive dataset for training. To significantly cut down on its training time and dataset volume, pretrained models, have been used although, they are still required to undergo the usual training process for custom facial recognition tasks. This research focuses on an improved facial recognition system that lacks the training and retraining requirements. The system uses an existing deep learning feature extraction model. First, a user stands before a camera-enabled system. After that, the user supplies a unique identification number to fetch a corresponding face image from the database. This process generates two face feature vectors. One from the camera and that retrieved from the database. The cosine distance function determines the similarity value of these vectors. When the cosine distance value falls below a set threshold, the face is recognized and access granted. If the cosine distance of the two vectors gives a value above this threshold, access is denied. The proposed model performs satisfactorily on publicly available datasets.
