Gender classification in video with OpenCV

I'm doing a school project and I am trying to do gender detection in real time and I have started off with these two tutorials provided at OpenCV.

Face recognition in video with OpenCV, Gender classification with OpenCV

I am very new to OpenCV and C++ so there are certain things that I'm unsure of. I am actually very confused with the results of the Gender Classification as of how it can help me in detecting gender. I understand that Fisherface displays the features that differs between male and female, and also the other pop-up that displayed the average face of the male and female images, but what does the Fisherface reconstruction represent?

How can I implement gender classification using these tutorials in the same way as how "Face recognition in video with OpenCV" displayed the prediction results?

I came across this article, and because of its detailed explanation and coding, I have started to understand how Eigenfaces and Fisherfaces work.

Hope it helps other people too!

And by simply setting the labels as 0 and 1 for female and male respectively like how Face Recognition in Video does for the IDs of different people worked.
