Kinship recognition is a challenging problem with many practical applications. With much progress and milestones having been reached after ten years - we are now able to survey the research and create new milestones. 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. The different tasks are described in technical terms and syntax consistent across the problem domain and the practical

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 establish a stronghold for the state of progress for the different problems in a consistent manner. This survey will serve as the central resource for the work of the next decade to build upon. For the tenth anniversary, the demo code is provided for the various kin-based tasks. Detecting relatives with visual recognition and classifying the relationship is an area with high potential for impact in research and practice.IEEE Transactions on pattern analysis and machine intelligence
