Africa has four Nobel Laureates for literature and a rich and varied artistic heritage. Examples of well-known annual African cultural festivals include Fespaco, the continent-wide film festival in Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso, Poetry Africa in Durban, South Africa and the Zanzibar International Film Festival in Tanzania.
- Colonial impact on art and culture:
How does the art and culture of your country reflect colonial impact? State how colonialism has impacted the following:
the languages of your country (e.g. their use in schools as languages of teaching and learning, their use in government for statecraft, their use in business, etc.)?
the literature of your country?
the film of your country?
the festivals of your country?
the music and dance of your country?
the cuisine of your country?
the major religions of your country, e.g. Are there signs of religious syncretism?
- Leading/notable influences on art and culture and their works (identify 3 for each category):
Who are the leading or notable influences of art and culture in your country – what are some examples of their work and what is the impact of their work both locally and internationally?
Who are the major writers … what are some examples … what is their impact locally/internationally?
Who are the major artists … what are some examples … what is their impact locally/internationally?
Who are the major film makers … what are some examples … what is their impact locally/internationally?
Who are the major musicians … what are some examples … what is their impact locally/internationally?
Using all the data and analysis you have done pertaining to the above questions, write a conclusion addressing how culture in your country can play a role in economic and social development.
s listed above, there exists a long list of methods and algorithms that can be used for facial recognition. Four of them are used frequently and are most known in the literature, i.e. Eigenface Method, Correlation Method, Fisherface Method and the Linear Subspaces Method. But how do these facial recognition work? Because of word limitations, only one of those four facial recognition techniques, i.e The Eigenface Method, will be discussed. Hopefully this will give an general idea of how facial recognition works and can be used. One of the major difficulties of facial recognition, is that you have to cope with the fact that a person’s appearance may change, such that the two images that are being compared differentiate too much from each other. Also environmental changes in pictures, like lightning, have to be taken into account, in order to have successful facial recognition. Thus from a picture of a face, as well as from a live face, some yet more abstract visual representation must be established which can mediate recognition despite the fact that in real life the same face will hardly ever form an identical image on successive occasions. Our ability to do this shows that we can derive structural codes for faces, which capture those aspects of the structure of a face essential to distinguish it from other faces. One of the four most famous facial recognition methods is the Eigenface Method. This method focuses on the aspects of the face stimulus that are important for identification. This is done by decoding face images into significant local and global ‘features’. Such features may or may not be directly related to our intuitive notion of face features such as the eyes, nose, lips and hair. Scientists Matthew Turk and Alex Pentland  developed a computer system for the eigenface approach which works as following: “In the language of information theory, we want to extract the relevant informa>GET ANSWER
