This work introduces a novel methodology for human face recognition based on lattice computing kNN classification techniques applied on thermal infrared images. Novel feature extraction and knowledge-representation engage populations of orthogonal moments represented by intervals’ numbers, or INs for short. Preliminary experimental results compare well with the results by alternative classifiers as well as with alternative feature extraction techniques from the literature. We point out the far-reaching potential of the proposed techniques to big data applications.
