Hand-Based Gender Classification
BackgroundIn computer vision, the majority of studies on gender classification are based on face because visual information from human faces provides important cues for gender classification. Less popular for gender classification is the use of modalities other than the face such as hands, irises and fingerprints, but using different parts of the b...
