MultiFace: A Generic Training Mechanism for Boosting Face Recognition Performance [article]

Jing Xu, Tszhang Guo, Yong Xu, Zenglin Xu, Kun Bai
2021 arXiv   pre-print
To address these problems, we propose a simple yet efficient training mechanism called MultiFace, where we approximate the original high-dimensional features by the ensemble of low-dimensional features  ...  Deep Convolutional Neural Networks (DCNNs) and their variants have been widely used in large scale face recognition(FR) recently.  ...  Therefore MultiFace can strengthen the model's generation ability and lead to a better performance.  ...

Tuning Asymboost Cascades Improves Face Detection

I. Visentini, C. Micheloni, G.L. Foresti
2007 2007 IEEE International Conference on Image Processing  
This interest raises from the conscience that this is a crucial step for every system that uses biometric information.  ...  AdaBoost and AsymBoost based classifiers are widely used to achieve high performances saving computational time.  ...  When the detection of an object has to be performed on real and complex scenario, the problem is a pattern recognition task.  ...

Object Tracking by Oversampling Local Features

Federico Pernici, Alberto Del Bimbo
2014 IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence  
We have reported superior or equal performance in most of the cases and verified tracking with no drift in very long video sequences.  ...  This allows taking into account the 3D shape deviations from planarity and their interactions with shadows, occlusions and sensor quantization for which no invariant representations can be defined.  ...  He has delved into object recognition and image sequence analysis, image and video database content based retrieval, and advanced man-machine interaction.  ...

Safety Doesn't Happen by Accident: A Longitudinal Investigation on the Antecedents of Safety Behavior

Greta Mazzetti, Emanuela Valente, Dina Guglielmi, Michela Vignoli
2020 International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health  
Data were collected at two time-points on a sample of N = 278 construction workers taking part in different safety training courses promoted by a vocational training organization in Northern Italy.  ...  These findings contribute to the understanding of those factors that constitute a fertile ground for preventing injuries and accidents in the construction sector.  ...  Previous studies also recognized a boosting role that organizational climate could play in fostering the relationship between safety knowledge and the enactment of safety performance [42] .  ...
