In recent years, convolutional neural network (CNN) based methods have achieved great success in a large number of applications and have been among the most powerful and widely used techniques in computer vision. However, CNN-based methods are com-putational-intensive and resource-consuming, and thus are hard to be integrated into embedded systems such as(More)
We present a new approach to localize extensive facial landmarks with a coarse-to-fine convolutional network cascade. Deep convolutional neural networks (DCNN) have been successfully utilized in facial landmark localization for two-fold advantages: 1) geometric constraints among facial points are implicitly utilized, 2) huge amount of training data can be(More)
Face recognition performance improves rapidly with the recent deep learning technique developing and underlying large training dataset accumulating. In this paper, we report our observations on how big data impacts the recognition performance. According to these observations, we build our Megvii Face Recognition System, which achieves 99.50% accuracy on the(More)
Face hallucination method is proposed to generate highresolution images from low-resolution ones for better visualization. However, conventional hallucination methods are often designed for controlled settings and cannot handle varying conditions of pose, resolution degree, and blur. In this paper, we present a new method of face hallucination, which can(More)
Large scale artificial neural networks (ANNs) have been widely used in data processing applications. The recurrent neural network (RNN) is a special type of neural network equipped with additional recurrent connections. Such a unique architecture enables the recurrent neural network to remember the past processed information and makes it an expressive model(More)
Facial landmark localization plays an important role in face recognition and analysis applications. In this paper, we give a brief introduction to a coarse-to-fine pipeline with neural networks and sequential regression. First, a global convolutional network is applied to the holistic facial image to give an initial landmark prediction. A pyramid of(More)
In this paper we proposed a 4-stage coarse-to-fine framework to tackle the facial landmark localization problem in-the-wild. In our system, we first predict the landmark key points on a coarse level of granularity, which sets a good initialization for the whole framework. Then we group the key points into several components and refine each component with(More)
