Face antispoofing has now attracted intensive attention, aiming to assure the reliability of face biometrics. We notice that currently most of face anti-spoofing databases focus on data with little variations, which may limit the generalization performance of trained models since potential attacks in real world are probably more complex. In this paper we(More)
The goal of face hallucination is to generate high-resolution images with fidelity from low-resolution ones. In contrast to existing methods based on patch similarity or holistic constraints in the image space, we propose to exploit local image structures for face hallucination. Each face image is represented in terms of facial components, contours and(More)
This paper formulates face labeling as a conditional random field with unary and pairwise classifiers. We develop a novel multi-objective learning method that optimizes a single unified deep convolutional network with two distinct non-structured loss functions: one encoding the unary label likelihoods and the other encoding the pairwise label dependencies.(More)
We specify more general settings and performance of the proposed network in Section 2. We visualize and analyze more weight maps generated by the deep CNN in the proposed algorithm in Section 3. We demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed image denoising model via more quantitative and qualitative results in Section 4. In Section 5, we compare the(More)
We present a novel framework for hallucinating faces of unconstrained poses and with very low resolution (face size as small as 5pxIOD). In contrast to existing studies that mostly ignore or assume pre-aligned face spatial configuration (e.g. facial landmarks localization or dense correspondence field), we alternatingly optimize two complementary tasks,(More)
Heterogeneous Face Recognition (HFR) refers recognition of face images captured in different modalities, e.g. Visual (VIS), near infrared (NIR) and thermal infrared (TIR). Although heterogeneous face images of a given person differ by pixel values, the identity of the face should be classified as the same. This paper focuses on NIR-VIS HFR. Light Source(More)
This paper presents an occlusion robust image representation method and apply it to face recognition. Inspired from the recent work [15], we propose a Gabor phase difference representation for occlusion robust face recognition. Based on the good ability of Gabor filters to capture image structure and the robustness to image occlusion shown in this paper,(More)
In this paper, we propose an effective face completion algorithm using a deep generative model. Different from well-studied background completion, the face completion task is more challenging as it often requires to generate semantically new pixels for the missing key components (e.g., eyes and mouths) that contain large appearance variations. Unlike(More)
In this paper, we propose an algorithm to hallucinate faces in the JPEG compressed domain, which has not been well addressed in the literature. The proposed approach hallucinates compressed face images through an exemplar-based framework and solves two main problems. First, image noise introduced by JPEG compression is exacerbated through the(More)
