Abstract(in English) In this paper, we present a face matching method which introduces the image processing of biological vision system and takes attention mechanism into consideration. To imitake the image processing at retina, a contrast filter which resembles the receptive field profile of retinal ganglion cell is used. Gabor filters are also used to imitate the image processing at V1 area. As the saliency(importance)value for attention, the information of Gabor features(output of Gabor filters)is used. In matching process, the information is used as the weight to calculate the similarity between model image and input image. This means that the attention points with high information have much influence to the matching result. To cope with the sale changes of a face, several images with different scales are generated by interpolation method from input image and these images are used as the matching candidates. The proposed method is applied to face detection and recognition task. The effectiveness of the proposed method is confirmed by the experiments using face images captured under various environments.
