Bayesian approach to skin color classification in YCbCr color space

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • This paper addresses an image classification technique that uses the Bayes decision rule for minimum cost to classify pixels into skin color and non-skin color. Color statistics are collected from YCbCr color space. The Bayesian approach to skin color classification is discussed along with an overview of YCbCr color space. Experimental results demonstrate that this approach can achieve good classification outcomes, and it is robust against different skin colors.
