Face Synthesis for Eyeglass-Robust Face Recognition [chapter]

Jianzhu Guo, Xiangyu Zhu, Zhen Lei, Stan Z. Li
2018 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we propose to address this problem in a virtual synthesis manner. The high-fidelity face images with eyeglasses are synthesized based on 3D face model and 3D eyeglasses.  ...  A feasible method is to collect large-scale face images with eyeglasses for training deep learning methods.  ...  They presented a system for trying on prescription eyeglasses, which could produce a more real look of wearing eyeglasses. Synthetic images for training.  ...
