I am final year computer science student from Saudi Arabia. My field of
interest is image processing and artificial intelligence. I am currently
doing a remote sensing project titled (supervised classification of
multi-spectral images using neural network). I am proficient in

I would like to develop and enhance digikam's face recognition capability
along with image tagging.

Is there already a code for face detection/face recognition in digikam?
I am quite new to the OpenCV library.   I have been reading OpenCv in the
last two days.

I think I can Use Eigenfaces method to detect faces/ extract features of the
faces and inject features on neural network for classification.

The advantages of this approach is that we utilize the classification power
of neural network ( can be retrained as new images are identified) and
maintaining speed by limiting the data to face's features.

The neural network library  i am going to use Fast Artificial Neural Network
Library (FANN) available at http://leenissen.dk/fann/html/files/fann-h.html.

What do you think?
