Sorry, no etymologies found.
Find the principal components of the face distribution, or the eigenvectors of the covariance matrix of the set of face images, called eigenfaces Eigenfaces are a set of features that characterize the variation between face images Each training face image can be represented in terms of a linear combination of the eigenfaces, so can the new input image Compare the feature weights of the new input image with those of the known individuals
It seems to be some kind of optic-lobe hack that accesses a collaborative database of eigenfaces, with some sort of side-interface to Broca's region.
Given an image to be recognized, calculate a set of weights of the M eigenfaces by projecting it onto each of the eigenfaces 3.
