In the chapter we present a new ear recognition model, called COM-Ear. COM-Ear combines global and local information within a single CNN model and offers a high-level of explainability. Additionally, the model also exhibits considerable robustness to occlusions.
The chapter is joint work between Dejan Štepec, Žiga Emeršič, Peter Peer and Vitomir Štruc.
