Abstract—This paper brings out a new approach of information extraction based on fuzzy logic, which can be used for robust face recognition system. We have applied a fuzzi fication operation to extract the pixel wise association of face images to different classes. The fuzzi fication operation uses π membership function to obtain the degree of belonging of a particular pixel to all classes. Further nearest neighbor classification using correlation coefficient and principal component analysis are used to obtain the classification error over AT&T face database. The results clearly confirmed the superiority of proposed approach.
Index Terms—Face recognition, fuzzy logic, information extraction, π membership.
