However, it is important to point out the situation that occurs with speech and speaker recognition problems, where the former tries to understand the message independently of the speaker and the latter tries to identify the speaker independently of the uttered message. In this case, the same kind of parameterization is suitable for both of them: the MEL-cepstrum. Thus, same situation could occur in face recognition. Although the classifier also plays an important role, this paper is focused on feature extraction.
