Face recognition for look-alikes: A preliminary study
"Face recognition for look-alikes: A..." refers methods in this paper
...LBP  encodes the texture of an image and usesχ2 distance to compute the match scores....
...The experiments on PCA-KPCA, ICAKICA, LDA-KLDA, LBP, EUCLBP, SURF, and GNN are performed using a large database with different challenging variations on pose, expression and illumination....
...Among several improvements over LBP, EUCLBP  has shown significant improvement....
...ROC plots for texture descriptor based approaches(LBP, EUCLBP, and SURF) on the look-alike face database. algorithms are not able to discriminate between the inter and intra-class variations....
...Texture descriptor based algorithms are also used for performance comparison, namely: Local Binary Pattern (LBP), Extended Uniform Circular LBP (EUCLBP), Speeded Up Robust Feature (SURF) descriptors, and dynamic feed-forward neural network architecture based 2D log polar Gabor transform (GNN) ....
