The Joint Bayesian[1] method was published in 2012. Since then, it has been used for binary classification in almost all state-of-the-art face recognition methods. However, no improved methods have been published so far except 2D-JB[2]. In this paper we propose an improved version of the JB method that considers the features of both the given face image and its mirror image. In pattern classification, it is very likely to make a mistake when the value of the decision function is close to the decision boundary or the threshold. By making the value of the decision function far from the decision boundary, the proposed method reduces the errors. The experimental results show that the proposed method outperforms the JB and 2D-JB methods by more than 1% in the challenging LFW DB. Many state-of-the-art methods required tons of training data to improve 1% in the LFW DB, but the proposed method can make it in an easy way.
