Face Image Classification by Pooling Raw Features

We propose a very simple, efficient yet surprisingly effective feature extraction method for face recognition (about 20 lines of Matlab code), which is mainly inspired by spatial pyramid pooling in generic image classification. We show that features formed by simply pooling local patches over a multi-level pyramid, coupled with a linear classifier, can significantly outperform most recent face recognition methods...
