Improving Face Detection



A novel Genetic Programming approach for the improvement of the performance of classier systems through the synthesis of new training instances is presented. The approach relies on the ability of the Genetic Programming engine to identify and exploit shortcomings of classier systems, and generate instances that are misclassied by them. The addition of these instances to the training set has the potential to improve classier's performance. The experimental results attained with face detection classiers are presented and discussed. Overall they indicate the success of the approach.
