AttributeError: module 'cv2.cv2' has no attribute 'face_LBPHFaceRecognizer'

Machine Learning

Hi Guys,

I am trying to train my model using LBPHFaceRecognizer, so that it can detect my face. But I am getting this below error.

AttributeError Traceback (most recent call last)
<ipython-input-3-93a512c7e667> in <module>
24 # Create a numpy array for both training data and labels
25 Labels = np.asarray(Labels, dtype=np.int32)
---> 26 model=cv2.face_LBPHFaceRecognizer.create()
27 # Initialize facial recognizer
28 # model = cv2.face_LBPHFaceRecognizer.create()
AttributeError: module 'cv2.cv2' has no attribute 'face_LBPHFaceRecognizer'

How can I solve this error?

There is a module called LBPHFaceRecognizer module that comes from a package called opencv-contrib-python. Hence, you will need to install this package. Then restart the program which would hopefully resolve the issue. Here is the installation code.

$ pip install opencv-contrib-python


You should install opencv-contrib using the following command.

pip install opencv-contrib-python
