The recent success of emerging RGB-D cameras such as the Kinect sensor depicts a broad prospect of 3-D data-based computer applications. However, due to the lack of a standard testing database, it is difficult to evaluate how the face recognition technology can benefit from this up-to-date imaging sensor. In order to establish the connection between the(More)
Watermarking digital video material is usually considered as watermarking a sequence of still images. However, such a frame-by-frame approach is very risky since straightforward embedding strategies can result in poor performance in terms of security i.e., against hostile attacks. As examples, two very common video-watermarking systems will be presented as(More)
RGB-D is a powerful source of data providing the aligned depth information which has great potentials in improving the performance of various problems in image understanding, while Local Binary Patterns (LBP) have shown excellent results in representing faces. In this paper, we propose a novel efficient LBP-based descriptor, namely Gradient-LBP (G-LBP),(More)
In this letter, a novel reversible data hiding (RDH) algorithm is proposed for digital images. Instead of trying to keep the PSNR value high, the proposed algorithm enhances the contrast of a host image to improve its visual quality. The highest two bins in the histogram are selected for data embedding so that histogram equalization can be performed by(More)
Digital visual media represent nowadays one of the principal means for communication. Lately, the reliability of digital visual information has been questioned, due to the ease in counterfeiting both its origin and content. Digital image forensics is a brand new research field which aims at validating the authenticity of images by recovering information(More)
There are several types of spoofing attacks to face recognition systems such as photograph, video or mask attacks. Recent studies show that face recognition systems are vulnerable to these attacks. In this paper, a countermeasure technique is proposed to protect face recognition systems against mask attacks. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first(More)
It has been recently shown that Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) can produce synthetic images of exceptional visual fidelity. In this work, we propose the first GANbased method for automatic face aging. Contrary to previous works employing GANs for altering of facial attributes, we make a particular emphasize on preserving the original person’s(More)
Facial occlusions, due for example to sunglasses, hats, scarf, beards etc., can significantly affect the performance of any face recognition system. Unfortunately, the presence of facial occlusions is quite common in real-world applications especially when the individuals are not cooperative with the system such as in video surveillance scenarios. While(More)
Biometrics is an emerging topic in the field of signal processing. While technologies (e.g. audio, video) for biometrics have mostly been studied separately, ultimately, biometric technologies could find their strongest role as interwined and complementary pieces of a multi-modal authentication system. In this paper, a short overview of voice, fingerprint,(More)
