Face recognition system is a computer’s capability which gives it a vision of performing two fundamental operations the detection and the recognition of a human face. With the advancement of machine learning algorithm and image processing techniques the accuracy of face recognition system has been significantly improved. The objective of this paper is to give a detailed survey of a few face recognition algorithm with their features and limitations. The basics of face detection and face recognition techniques along with their approaches are described in the section.
