Darker than Black-Box: Face Reconstruction from Similarity Queries

  title={Darker than Black-Box: Face Reconstruction from Similarity Queries},
  author={Anton Razzhigaev and Klim Kireev and Igor Udovichenko and Aleksandr Petiushko},
Several methods for inversion of face recognition models were recently presented, attempting to reconstruct a face from deep templates. Although some of these approaches work in a black-box setup using only face embeddings, usually, on the end-user side, only similarity scores are provided. Therefore, these algorithms are inapplicable in such scenarios. We propose a novel approach that allows reconstructing the face querying only similarity scores of the black-box model. While our algorithm… Expand
