In the last decades, for reasons of safety or convenience, biometric characteristics are increasingly being used to identify individuals who wish to have access to systems or places, and facial features are one of the most used characteristics for this purpose. For biometric identification to be effective, the rates of recognition accuracy must be high. However, these rates can be very low depending on the difference (displacement) between the domain of the images stored in the database of the biometric system (source images) and the images used at the moment of identification (target images). The objective of this research project is to study two recent methods of domain adaptation, TKL (Transfer Kernel Learning) and KEMA (Kernel Manifold Alignment), and to evaluate their performances in biometric facial recognition tasks, in which there are differences between the source and target images domains.
