The facial image analysis for classifying human age has a vital role in Image processing, Pattern recognition, Computer vision, Cognitive science and Forensic science. The various computational and mathematical models, for classifying facial age includes Principal Component Analysis (PCA) and Wavelet Transforms and Local Binary Pattern (LBP). A more sophisticated method is introduced to improve the performance of the system by decomposing the face image using 2-level linear wavelet transforms and classifying the human age group using Artificial Neural Network. This approach needs normalizing the facial image at first and then extracting the face features using linear wavelet transforms. The distance of the features is measured using Euclidean distance and given as input to Adaptive Resonance Theory (ART). The network is trained with an own dataset consisting of 70 facial images of various age group. The goal of the proposed work is to classify the human age group into four categories as Child, Adolescence, Adult and Senior Adult.
