This project implements face extraction as well as recognition. A video is provided as the input initially. All the faces from the video are extraction. These faces are further optimized to remove redundant data. A video is played resulting all the faces which were extracted from the input video. An image then is provided as an input for face recognition. This image is matched with the datasets of the faces extracted and if the match is found it is displayed as the result. Voila Jones algorithm is used for face detection. PCA algorithm is used for comparing frames. Eigen values are calculated which are used for comparison.
