A spectral histogram descriptor computes a set of marginal distributions based on the filter bank’s responses, and further encodes them into the images. The encoding process for local image structure takes place during the filtering stage, whereas the encoding process of global image feature is conducted during the histogram stage. One drawback of spectral histogram descriptors is their performances will be greatly deteriorated when the filter bank’s responses are not stochastically independent. To tackle this problem, a computational technique named Enhanced Independent Spectral Histogram Feature (EISHF) is proposed. EISHF is composed of four working modules: (1) unsupervised independent filter bank responses computation, (2) binary hashing, (3) XOR bitwise operation and feature encoding, and lastly, (4) block-wise histogramming. To ensure the performance of ordinary spectral histogram descriptors, an XOR operation has been delicately adopted to increase the independency of the filter responses. Tested on three public face databases, the experimental results have substantiated the performance of EISHF in handling different kinds of facial expressions, illuminations, time spans as well as facial makeup effects.
