This method is better than many others in terms of recognition rate. The reverse of the medal is the non-trivial computational cost of the training phase. As for robustness to lighting variations in purely 2D methods, the present trend is to exploit some image normalization technique, rather than devising distortion invariant recognition techniques. A comparison is performed in (Ruiz-del-Solar, & Quinteros, 2008) among many lighting normalization algorithms. SQI (Self Quotient Image) (Wang, 2004a) and Local Binary Pattern (Ahoen, 2004), result to represent the best compromise in terms of simplicity, speed and authentication accuracy when the adopted classifier is of eigen-space based type.
Other strategies can make the recognition robust to local alterations. Bartlett et al. (Bartlett, 2002) show that first and second order statistics (PCA) only hold information about the amplitude spectrum of an image, and discard the phase spectrum. However, human object recognition capability appears to be mainly driven by the phase-spectrum. Therefore Independent Component Analysis (ICA) is introduced (Bartlett, 2002) as a more powerful face classification tool. The ICA generalizes PCA, yet providing a better characterization of data, and capturing discriminant features also considering Face Searching in Large Databases the high-order statistics.
