Introduction to Human Age Estimation Using Face Images

Open access

Abstract

Age estimation is one of the tasks of facial image classification. It can be defined as determination of a person's age or age group from facial images. This paper gives an overview of recent research in facial age estimation. Along with an overview of previous research on this topic, descriptions of basic age estimation models are given: anthropometric model, active appearance model, aging pattern subspace and age manifold.
