Leveraging Billions of Faces to Overcome Performance Barriers in Unconstrained Face Recognition [article]

Yaniv Taigman, Lior Wolf
2011 arXiv   pre-print
In addition, discriminative models based on billions of faces are used in order to overcome aging and facial expression as well as low light and overexposure.  ...  We employ the face recognition technology developed in house at face.com to a well accepted benchmark and show that without any tuning we are able to considerably surpass state of the art results.  ...  Namely, the face recognition engine is able to largely overcome pose and illumination variations. Pose is dealt by a normalization process in which all images are mapped to a frontal view.  ...

Survey on the Analysis and Modeling of Visual Kinship: A Decade in the Making [article]

Joseph P Robinson and Ming Shao and Yun Fu
2021 arXiv   pre-print
As part of such, we review systems proposed as part of a recent data challenge held in conjunction with the 2020 IEEE Conference on Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition.  ...  We review the public resources and data challenges that enabled and inspired many to hone-in on the views of automatic kinship recognition in the visual domain.  ...  Upon a clear assessment of the state of progress in research, we highlight barriers still in need of overcoming, along with sharing edge cases as means of highlighting common errors.  ...

Facial Sentiment Analysis using AI Techniques: State-of-the-Art, Taxonomies, and Challenges

Keyur Patel, Dev Mehta, Chinmay Mistry, Rajesh Gupta, Sudeep Tanwar, Neeraj Kumar, Mamoun Alazab
2020 IEEE Access  
In the proposed survey, we analyze the existing surveys pertaining to different approaches of FER proposed by the authors globally.  ...  One of the applications is facial sentiment analysis. Deep learning has made facial expression recognition the most trending research fields in computer vision area.  ...  To overcome these barriers, ensemble learning was applied because it helped in more accurate classification and prediction by concatenating the outputs of the base learning approaches.  ...
