Automatic face recognition is now widely used in applications ranging from deduplication of identity to authentication of mobile payment. This popularity of face recognition has raised concerns about face spoof attacks (also known as biometric sensor presentation attacks), where a photo or video of an authorized person's face could be used to gain access to(More)
The problem of automatically matching composite sketches to facial photographs is addressed in this paper. Previous research on sketch recognition focused on matching sketches drawn by professional artists who either looked directly at the subjects (viewed sketches) or used a verbal description of the subject's appearance as provided by an eyewitness(More)
Demographic estimation entails automatic estimation of age, gender and race of a person from his face image, which has many potential applications ranging from forensics to social media. Automatic demographic estimation, particularly age estimation, remains a challenging problem because persons belonging to the same demographic group can be vastly different(More)
There has been a growing interest in automatic age estimation from facial images due to a variety of potential applications in law enforcement, security control, and humancomputer interaction. However, despite advances in automatic age estimation, it remains a challenging problem. This is because the face aging process is determined not only by intrinsic(More)
As face recognition applications progress from constrained sensing and cooperative subjects scenarios (e.g., driver's license and passport photos) to unconstrained scenarios with uncooperative subjects (e.g., video surveillance), new challenges are encountered. These challenges are due to variations in ambient illumination, image resolution, background(More)
Facial composites are widely used by law enforcement agencies to assist in the identification and apprehension of suspects involved in criminal activities. These composites, generated from witness descriptions, are posted in public places and media with the hope that some viewers will provide tips about the identity of the suspect. This method of(More)
Face recognition in surveillance systems is important for security applications, especially in nighttime scenarios when the subject is far away from the camera. However, due to the face image quality degradation caused by large camera standoff and low illuminance, nighttime face recognition at large standoff is challenging. In this paper, we report a system(More)
Mobile devices can carry large amounts of personal data, but are often left unsecured. PIN locks are inconvenient to use and thus have seen low adoption (33% of users). While biometrics are beginning to be used for mobile device authentication, they are used only for initial unlock. Mobile devices secured with only login authentication are still vulnerable(More)
Apparent age estimation from face image has attracted more and more attentions as it is favorable in some real-world applications. In this work, we propose an end-to-end learning approach for robust apparent age estimation, named by us AgeNet. Specifically, we address the apparent age estimation problem by fusing two kinds of models, i.e., real-value based(More)
