The ability to accurately detect faces in a video stream under a wide range of illumination and environmental conditions is of great practical value, but it is still a very challenging research problem. Relevance of such capabilities for combating terrorism was very clearly articulated in the RFP prepared by the USD (AT&L) TSWG BAA right after the unfortunate incidents of September 11, 2001. Our research team has pursued video segmentation, face detection and person identification, and tracking research over the past several years and has developed a number of powerful and promising new approaches.
