Face recognition with genetic algorithm


Hi. We're working on a face recognition system and we'd like to know how genetic algorithm can be applied in our system. We're pretty new with LabVIEW and have little idea about genetic algorithm. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You mentioned you are pretty new to LabVIEW. Are you aware of the Vision Development Module ( It has a host of built in functions and algorithms to handle image processing.

I was also able to find a case study discussing the development of a facial recognition system ( and another forum post discussing facial recognition (

Hopefully, this sets you in the right direction. If you have any more specific questions, feel free to post them here.

We've managed to match image patterns already. What we're looking for is how we're going to add genetic algorithm in face recognition.

Take a look at this community example on implementing genetic algorithms in LabVIEW

Convolutional neural networks are currently the best performing solution to facial recognition problems. If you need assistance, we at JKI may be able to help. Drop us a message if interested.
