This is my guide to face recognition with OpenCV2 C++ and GNU Octave/MATLAB. If you research on face recognition, you'll soon notice there's a gigantic number of publications, but source code is very sparse. So this guide is here to change that. Two algorithms are explained and implemented with GNU Octave/MATLAB and OpenCV2 C++ namely Eigenfaces and Fisherfaces.
