In this paper, a reliable method for detecting human faces in an image is devised. The approach is based on the genetic algorithm and the eigenface technique. As the genetic algorithm is a computationally intensive process, the searching space for possible face regions is limited to possible eye regions so that the required timing is greatly reduced. In addition, the lighting effect and orientation of the faces are considered and solved in this method.
