Automatic Clothes Segmentation for Soft Biometrics

In: Proc. of the International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP14).

During the last decade, researchers have verified that clothing can provide information for gender recognition. However, before extracting features, it is necessary to segment the clothing region. We introduce a new clothes segmentation method based on the application of the GrabCut technique over a trixel mesh, obtaining very promising results for a close to   real time system. Finally, the clothing features are combined with facial and head context information to outperform previous results in gender recognition with a public database.
