In this paper we address for the first time, the problem of video-based face recognition in the context of sparse representation classification (SRC). The SRC classification using still face images, has recently emerged as a new paradigm in the research of view-based face recognition. In this research we extend the SRC algorithm for the problem of temporal face recognition. Extensive identification and verification experiments were conducted using the VidTIMIT database [1,2]. Comparative analysis with state-of-the-art Scale Invariant Feature Transform (SIFT) based recognition was also performed. The SRC algorithm achieved 94.45% recognition accuracy which was found comparable to 93.83% results for the SIFT based approach. Verification experiments yielded 1.30% Equal Error Rate (EER) for the SRC which outperformed the SIFT approach by a margin of 0.5%. Finally the two classifiers were fused using the weighted sum rule. The fusion results consistently outperformed the individual experts for identification, verification and rank-profile evaluation protocols.
