Even if biometric features have been deeply studied, tested and successfully applied to many applications, there is no study in achieving a biometric feature one from another. This study presents a novel intelligent approach analysing the existence of any relationship among fingerprints and faces. The approach is based on artificial neural networks to generate face contour of a person from only his/her fingerprint. Experimental results have shown that there are close relationships among the features of fingerprints and faces. It is possible to generate face contours from fingerprint images without knowing any information about faces. Although the proposed system is initial study and it is still under development, the performance of the system is very encouraging and promising for the future developments and applications.
