Algorithm used for ELEC301 Viola-Jones-based facial detection and feature recognition project. This module is part of a collection.

In a standard 19x19 pixel sub-window, there are a lot of possible features, in this case we are only using 500 of them since it would be prohibitively expensive to evaluate them all. Thus, the object detection framework employs a variant of the learning algorithm adaptive boosting to both select the best features and to train classifiers that use them.

Example features in Viola-Jones
Viola-Jones closely resembles Haar basis function because it operates by summing the pixel values in rectangular areas of the image and then comparing the difference between the summations in the black and white triangles to the training data. It allows for possible detection of different sizes of faces by having a rectangular window detector that moves across the picture. The detector is capable of detecting faces, and its size changes with each scan. For the algorithm we use in the project, we can manually adjust the scaling depending on the size of the image. Unlike other facial recognition algorithms, which scale the picture each time and runs it through the detector, Viola-Jones scales the detector, allowing for faster calculation.The Viola-Jones calculation also contains a training data of faces and non-faces. For the algorithm that we use in this project, we have 2000 faces and 4000 non-faces in the training data.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.

what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
