I am a student pursuing B.Tech 4th year from Indian Institute of Information
Technology- Allahabad, India.

I am keen to get involved in open source project development. I have seen on
KDE website the project ideas for GSoC 2010. I would like to work on Face
Recognition Project. I took this project because  I have worked on the hand
gesture recognition using OpenCV and am currently working on the same area.
You can have a look at my last semester project demo <goog_1268969854826>
here <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wnKk07-YNFw&feature=player_embedded>. I
am having good knowledge of C++, Qt  and the classification algorithms.

I would like to know some more details of the project.

I would be happy to know answers to these following questions.
1. what classification algorithm is to be refined for face detection part.
OpenCV provides Haar Classifier using Ada boost learning and it works with
almost 99% accuracy. Is it the same algorithm that is to be refined or
something else?
2. If it is Haar classifier to be refined. In which part it is to be refined
haartraining utility or haar detection part ?

Hoping for a positive reply from you as soon as possible.
