  • Prepare the imagedataBefore we can train the recognizers we have to collect some image data with faces.
  • As I simply picked some images from the web, we have to extract a subimage centered at the face of the character shown in each image.
  • We will read the images and split them into a set of training and test samples as follows: – This will give us the following face images: – Resizing the images is necessary, as the recognizers expect the data to be equally sized images.
  • We can now run the prediction of our test images: – Running the example should give us the following output: – eigen: – predicted daryl to be: daryl, confidence: 1245.68 – predicted negan to be: negan, confidence: 2247.25 – predicted rick to be: negan, confidence: 2502.47fisher: – predicted daryl to…
  • There is also a second face recognition example in the repo, which produces the result shown in the title image, just in case your interested.
