Abstract [en]

Face detection is used in many different areas and with this thesis

we aim to show the difference between Facebooks face detection soft-ware compared with an open source version from OpenCV. By using

the simplest implementation of OpenCV we want to find out if it is

viable for use in personal applications and be of help for others wanting

to implement face detection. The dataset was meticulously checked to

find the exact number of faces in each image so that the optimal result

is given. The conclusion of this study is that Facebooks algorithm is

better trained and thus has better results, however OpenCV is still a

viable choice for your own applications.
