Abstract : A new palmprint classification method is proposed in this paper by using the wavelet features and AdaBoost. The method outperforms all other classification methods for the PolyU palmprint database. The novelty of the method is two-fold. On one hand, the combination of wavelet features with AdaBoost has never been proposed for palmprint classification before. On the other hand, a recently developed base learner (products of base classifiers) is included in this paper. Experiments are conducted in order to show the effectiveness of the proposed method for palmprint classification.
