  • Publication number: 20160148381
    Abstract: A category selection portion selects a face orientation based on an error between the positions of feature points (the eyes and the mouth) on the faces of each face orientation and the positions of feature points, corresponding to the feature points on the faces of each category, on the face of a collation face image. A collation portion collates the registered face images of the face orientation selected by the category selection portion and the collation face image with each other, and the face orientations are determined so that face orientation ranges where the error with respect to each individual face orientation is within a predetermined value are in contact with each other or overlap each other. The collation face image and the registered face images can be more accurately collated with each other.

  • Publication number: 20150227556
    Abstract: A PC performs full synchronization with a cloud system, whereas a smart phone performs thumbnail synchronization with the cloud system. Furthermore, when uploading a photograph to the cloud system, the PC and the smart phone create a thumbnail “medium” from the original photograph and send the thumbnail “medium” to the cloud system together with the original photograph. Furthermore, when creating the thumbnail “medium” and when one side is excessively longer than the other side, the PC and the smart phone reduce the long side to a predetermined threshold while maintaining the aspect ratio.

  • Publication number: 20150120693
    Abstract: Provided is an image search system with which, while preserving search precision, it is possible to alleviate transmission volume. A search server acquires from a recorder only low-dimension data which normally has a low data volume. When the density of low-dimension image data within a feature space is greater than or equal to a prescribed threshold value, that is to say, when the number of dimensions for carrying out an inter-image identification with only the low-dimension data is insufficient, the search server acquires from the recorder high-dimension image data for the low-dimension data. Thus, while preserving search precision, it is possible to alleviate data transmission volume of a communication path.
