Now adays, deep learning methods have been used in many areas such as big data analysis, speech and image processing with the increasing processing power and the development of graphics processors. In particular, face recognition systems have become one of the most important research topics in biometry. Light direction, reflection, emotional and physical changes in facial expression arc the main factors in face recognition systems that make recognition difficult. Training of the system with the available data in small data sets is an important factor that negatively affects the performance. The Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) model is a deep learning architecture used for large amounts of training data. In this study, a small number of employee images set of a small-scale company has been increased by applying different filters. In addition, it has been tried to determine which data augmentation options have more effect on face recognition. Thus, non-real-time face recognition has been performed by training with new augmented dataset of each picture with many features.
