Abstract: Although many methods have been implemented in the past, face recognition is still an active field of research especially after the current increased interest in security. In this paper, a face recognition system using Kernel Discriminant Analysis (KDA) and Support Vector Machine (SVM) with K-nearest neighbor (KNN) methods is presented. The kernel discriminates analysis is applied for extracting features from input images. Furthermore, SVM and KNN are employed to classify the face image based on the extracted features. This procedure is applied on each of Yale and ORL databases to evaluate the performance of the suggested system. The experimental results show that the system has a high recognition rate with accuracy up to 95.25% on the Yale database and 96% on the ORL, which are considered very good results comparing with other reported face recognition systems.
