Jointly De-biasing Face Recognition and Demographic Attribute Estimation [article]

Sixue Gong, Xiaoming Liu, Anil K. Jain
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Adversarial learning is adopted to minimize correlation among feature factors so as to abate bias influence from other factors.  ...  We present a novel de-biasing adversarial network (DebFace) that learns to extract disentangled feature representations for both unbiased face recognition and demographics estimation.  ...  Given this assumption, one common way to remove demographic information from face representations is to perform feature disentanglement via adversarial learning (Fig. 1b) .  ...

Privacy-Preserving Image Acquisition Using Trainable Optical Kernel [article]

Yamin Sepehri, Pedram Pad, Pascal Frossard, L. Andrea Dunbar
2021 arXiv   pre-print
In this work, for the first time, we propose a trainable image acquisition method that removes the sensitive identity revealing information in the optical domain before it reaches the image sensor.  ...  We show that this method can reduce 65.1% of sensitive content when it is selected to be the gender and it only loses 7.3% of the desired content.  ...  After training, the visual representation inverter can be used to reconstruct the original images from the output of the optical convolution.  ...
