Abstract

In this paper, we propose a new texture descriptor GLBP (Gradient LBP) for age group estimation. LBP exploits the only signs of the gradients between a center pixel and its surrounding pixels in a local patch and it does not reflect their magnitudes. This fails LBP to describe local signal structure in detail. Motivated by this observation, we propose so called GLBP, which considers the magnitude as well as the sign of the gradient. Experimental results show that when the proposed method is applied to age group estimation, it can achieve higher classification rate than existing well-known texture descriptors.
