Overview :

This example demonstrates how to register a new face, label new face, extract features and recognise the face in real time.It is a very interesting topic. However, in this example, we are not particular in the accuracy, instead of that, i'm demonstrating the workflow. In order to increase the accuracy, we might need to extract more features for machine learning.
There are many examples available online, some links are provided below, you may take a look at their example.
