sqface - Viola-Jones face detection algorithm implementation
This project implements Viola-Jones face detection algorithm in C++ using standard Haar cascade shipped with OpenCV. This is still an early alpha-version and a work in progress, so only one (front face) Haar cascade is supported and there is a lot of hardcoded limitations, mostly done in order to speed up the algorithm.
Using 512x512 full color pictures this algorithm is able to process ~3 pics per second.
OpenCV outperforms this code about 6-7 times over, but it also has a huge codebase.
