• FRI Piškot Seminar: On Face Recognition

At FRI Piškot Seminar on Thursday, 11 May 2017, Vitomir Štruc from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering will talk about face recognition. We meet at 14.15 in lecture hall 22.

Addressing Pose Variability for Automatic Face Recognition



Pose variability represents one of the major problems not satisfactory addressed yet by the existing face-recognition technology. Recent advancements in facial landmark localization and image alignment have made it possible to devise new methods and techniques to mitigate this problem and successfully match facial images captured under significantly different viewpoints (or poses). In this talk, we will discuss some of the methods that can be used to address pose variability in facial recognition systems and present our recent work on (a) facial landmark detection from 2D and 3D data, (b) face frontalization, and (c) reposing of facial images. We will elaborate on some of the recent trends in the area of facial alignment and highlight other application areas where the presented techniques can be used.
