A Mini-review of Face Alignment - Classical Method versus Deep Learning Approach

Nabilah Hamzah, Fadhlan Hafizhelmi Kamaru Zaman, Nooritawati Md Tahir
2021 International Journal of Electrical & Electronic Systems Research (IEESR)  
Numerous classic methods have used the 2D image for the detection of facial landmarks but this task is challenging due to several reasons, for instance, large poses, semi-frontal images, and facial expression  ...  Based on the review done, the 3D model could combat large poses, facial expressions, and semi-frontal images however some of the facial landmarks are not visible and stack together for occluded face images  ...  A generative approach is an approach that uses image local patches at the annotated facial landmark points.  ...
