We present a MIFE (Most Information Feature Extraction) approach, which extract as abundant as possible information for the face classification task. In the MIFE approach, a facial image is separated into sub-regions and each sub-region makes individual’s contribution for performing face recognition. Specifically, each sub-region is subjected to a sub-region based adaptive gamma (SadaGamma) correction or sub-region based histogram equalization (SHE) in order to account for different illuminations and expressions. Experiment results show that the proposed SadaGamma/SHE correction approach provides an efficient delighting solution for face recognition. MIFE and SadaGamma/SHE correction together achieves lower error ratio in face recognition under different illumination and expression.
