This study proposes an interactively recurrent self-evolving fuzzy cerebellar model articulation controller (IRSFCMAC) classifier to solve face detection problems. The learning methods of the proposed classifier are based on simultaneous structure and parameter learning. The structure learning is used to decide the proper input space partition, while the parameter learning is based on gradient descent method. The online structure learning does not need to set any initial structure in advance. In other words, the online structure learning algorithm enables the network along of the problem to efficiently identify the required network structure. The advantages of our proposed IRSFCMAC classifier include (1) using a non-constant differentiable Gaussian basis function to model the hypercube structure; (2) applying an interactively recurrent structure to serve as external loops and internal feedbacks by feeding the hypercube cell (rule) firing strength to itself and other hypercube cells (rules); and (3) requiring fewer computing memory. Finally, experimental results show that the proposed IRSFCMAC classifier is a more adaptive and effective face detection than the other classifiers.
