This paper considers the application of weightless neural networks (WNNs) to the problem of face recognition and compares the results with those provided using a more complicated multiple neural network approach. WNNs have significant advantages over the more common forms of neural networks, in particular in term of speed of operation and learning. A major difficulty when applying neural networks to face recognition problems is the high degree of variability in expression, pose and facial details: the generalisation properties of a WNN can be crucial. In the light of this problem a software simulator of a WNN has been built and the results of some initial tests are presented and compared with other techniques
