Outperforming PCA, Revisiting MATLAB

Post-denoising small

I currently work on a very fascinating project which deals with 3-D face recognition, as already stated back in January. Progress has been noticeable recently (easier to get coding done when the Internet is mostly unavailable due to Bad Telecom [1, 2, 3]) and the accompanying text is now about 50 pages long.

A few observations about MATLAB: the programming framework has not really developed much since 2003. It’s either quite stagnant or improved only in unseen places. I did not forget how to develop a GUI environment very rapidly.

A few observations about PCA: the method is a little antiquated and it can probably be outperformed by more problem-specific implementations of algorithms we explore.

A few observations about Bad Telecom (or Bastards Telecom, although some people view the word bastard as too strong): they only ever serve the customer properly if he/she becomes a threat to the reputation of the business. It is sad that customers must be seen as a risk before they can actually get progress made.
