Multi-view Face Detection Using Deep Convolutional Neural Network
- Train face classifier with face (> 0.5 overlap) and background (<0.5 overlap) images.
- Compute heatmap over test image scaled to different sizes with sliding window
- Apply NMS .
- Computation intensive, especially for CPU.
From Facial Parts Responses to Face Detection: A Deep Learning Approach
Keywords: object proposals, facial parts, more annotation.
- Use facial part annotations
- Bottom up to detect face from facial parts.
- "Faceness-Net’s pipeline consists of three stages,i.e. generating partness maps, ranking candidate windows by faceness scores, and refining face proposals for face detection."
- Train part based classifiers based on attributes related to different parts of the face i.e. for hair part train ImageNet pre-trained network for color classification.
- Very robust to occlusion and background clutter.
- To much annotation effort.
- Still object proposals (DL community should skip proposal approach. It complicate the problem by creating a new domain of problem :)) ).
