I have been given the project to research face regonition
Here is example of what I am looking to do:
take a digital picture, be able to automatically Crop and center the head, and be able to find the IRIS of the eye and then put a mask over it, all automated.
I am not asking how to do that, but what software apps would I use to get the job done.
I have found:
The Mathworks, Inc. (makers of Matlab) at least $1900 from what I saw # Octave (free alternative to Matlab) http://www.octave.org/octave.html
# TeLa (free alternative to Matlab) http://www.ava.fmi.fi/prog/tela.html
# RLaB (free alternative to Matlab) http://rlab.sourceforge.net/
Not recommended because no longer being developed
# Scilab (free alternative to Matlab) http://www-rocq.inria.fr/scilab/
But I am not sure if these are the right track for what I need to do.
