Completed Research Projects

  • A Computer Aided System to Identify the Face Shape of a Person using Machine Learning and Image Processing Techniques, 2014 - This was my Final Year Research Project at University of Sri Jayewardenepura. A prototype system that understands the face shape of a person. There are seven basic face shapes of a person. The system can identify the correct category by a given straight facial image. The system consists of a trained deep neural network that works as a classifier.
