Gender of the person can affect the human
behavior and social interactions greatly. In this paper,
we present a novel texture descriptor Local Directional
Pattern (LDP) to represent facial image for gender
classification. The proposed method operates on a
neighborhood of a pixel and forms a feature vector. All
the extracted feature vectors are copied into a matrix
which represents the coded image. The experimental
results are carried on Google Images and can also be
applied on FERET and FG-NET face database.
Experimental results show that the proposed method
on the images collected from Google Images achieved
around 95% accuracy.
