This program is the clone of 'Face Detection System' in MATLAB
but instead of Neural Networks, It is based on Support Vector Machine (SVM)

Face Detection System (Neural Network)

1- copy all files and directories to the MATLAB's work folder
* In order to run the program you must have Image Processing and Neural Networks Toolboxes

2- find the file named "main.m"

3- Double click on this file or type "main" in the command window

4- a menu will be shown . click on "Create SVM" and wait until the program is done with the training.

5- click on "Test on Photos". A dialog box will be appeared. Select a .jpg photo

6- Wait until the program detects some faces
