I would like to try out opencv face recognition for android...I have worked with android but i am totally noob in case of opencv. I need to build an app that would recognize a face by comparing it to a set of images. I would like to know where do i start from regarding opencv api for android. What would be the most convenient way to start and what docs to read.......any amount of help will be appreciated. Thanks.

Unfortunately OpenCV doesn't have mature face recognition functionality. But in the latest 2.4 release Philipp Wagner added some implementation to the opencv_contrib module. You can check his activity here: http://code.opencv.org/users/865 .

This wiki page may also contain some useful information: http://code.opencv.org/projects/opencv/wiki/FaceRecognition .

Please note the update for the upcoming OpenCV 2.4.2 release, which is coming with a lot of documentation:
