DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A COMPUTERISED FACE DETECTION AND RECOGNITION SYSTEM
A society with accurate and updated database of her citizens will face less crime. Imagine a society where citizens know that their faces and personal details are kept somewhere by the police or other relevant security agencies. The individual will maintain peace and order as he/she knows any crime committed by him/her will eventually lead to his/her arrest once his/her picture is captured by a secret camera. Faced with the numerous security challenges facing developing nations such as Nigeria, the researcher developed a computerized system where faces are captured and stored in the database for retrieval purposes, should in case faces need to be identified. The system was built with c# and MYSQL with a powerful potential of identifying graphical images uploaded to the system for identification as long as the database is updated with the face prior to retrieval of information.
