<p>The paper proposes a face detection system that locates and extracts faces from the background using the multilayer feedforward perceptron. Facial features are extracted from the local image using filters. In this approach, feature vector from Gabor filter acts as an input for the multilayer feedforward perceptron. The points holding high information on face image are used for extraction of feature vectors. Since Gabor filter extracts features from varying scales and orientations, the feature points are extracted with high accuracy. Experimental results show the multilayer feedforward perceptron discriminates and detects faces from non-face patterns irrespective of the illumination changes. © Springer India 2016.</p>
