Abstract: In this paper we use Bag of Words (BoW) to estimate the performance of face recognition system of visible and infrared images. The proposed BoW results compared with six conventional feature extraction methods i.e LBP, FAST, MSER, BRISK, SIFT, SURF. BoW model is tested and analyzed on OTCBVS database under various illumination and expressions of faces. The obtained results gives good precision and recall rates compared with six conventional feature extraction methods..
Keyword: Thermal face recognition, Feature Extraction, LBP, SIFT, FAST, SURF.
Scope of the Article: Pattern Recognition.
