Summary:
Image Processing and Computer Vision solutions have become commodities for software developers, thanks to the growing availability of Application Program- ming Interfaces (APIs) that encapsulate rich functionality, powered by advanced al- gorithms. To understand and create an e cient method to process faces in images by computers, one must understand how the human visual system processes them. Face processing by computers has been an active research area for about 50 years now. Face detection has become a commodity and is now incorporated into simple devices such as digital cameras and smartphones. An iOS app was implemented in Objective-C using Microsoft Cognitive Ser- vices APIs, as a tool for human vision and face processing research. Experimental work on image compression, upside-down orientation, the Thatcher e ect, negative inversion, high frequency, facial artifacts, caricatures and image degradation were completed on the Radboud and 10k US Adult Faces Databases along with other images.
