Hi all,

I'm newbie in OpenCV, and I'm working on Face recognition project with OpenCV 3.1.0 for android. So I can't use this method: "createEigenFaceRecognition (int, double)", or similar functions.

After google search, I know "Face" package is in OpenCV-contrib. And I don't know how to build OpenCV-contrib, or intergrate "Face" package into OpenCV, create *.so lib for Android.

So someone can help me, instruct me how to build or run it on android project. Thanks so much.

just as a sidenote: don't you rather want a 'central', server based face recognition, and a "thin client" on your phone ?

I create face recognition app on Android phone, use phone camera for detecting and recognizing face. It is an offline app, I run everything on phone.

you might be a bit out of luck here. the face module is currently not exposed to java, and the java wrappers won't even compile.

Guys - any idea when will this be available? any other way to do face recognition (meaning, face matching) in OpenCV 3 for Android?
