Automatic face recognition is a research area with high popularity. Many different face recognition algorithms have been proposed in the last thirty years of intensive research in the field. With the popularity of deep learning and its capability to solve a huge variety of different problems, face recognition researchers have concentrated ef-fort on creating better models under this paradigm. From the year 2015, state-of-the-art face recognition has been rooted in deep learning models. Despite the…

Inaccessible Neural Language Models Could Reinvigorate Linguistic Nativism

This work argues that this lack of accessibility could instill a nativist bias in researchers new to computational linguistics, and calls upon researchers to open source their LLM code wherever possible to allow both empircist and hybrid approaches to remain accessible.



Face Recognition in Challenging Environments: An Experimental and Reproducible Research Survey

This book chapter deals with face recognition in mobile and other challenging environments, where both still images and video sequences are examined and an easily extensible open-source toolbox is supplied to rerun all the experiments.

Learning Face Representation from Scratch

A semi-automatical way to collect face images from Internet is proposed and a large scale dataset containing about 10,000 subjects and 500,000 images, called CASIAWebFace is built, based on which a 11-layer CNN is used to learn discriminative representation and obtain state-of-theart accuracy on LFW and YTF.

Open-Source Face Recognition Frameworks: A Review of the Landscape

Deep Face Recognition: A Survey

FaceNet: A unified embedding for face recognition and clustering

A system that directly learns a mapping from face images to a compact Euclidean space where distances directly correspond to a measure offace similarity, and achieves state-of-the-art face recognition performance using only 128-bytes perface.

A survey on deep learning based face recognition

Deep Face Recognition

It is shown how a very large scale dataset can be assembled by a combination of automation and human in the loop, and the trade off between data purity and time is discussed.

Biometric Recognition Using Deep Learning: A Survey

This work provides a comprehensive survey of more than 120 promising works on biometric recognition (including face, fingerprint, iris, palmprint, ear, voice, signature, and gait recognition), which deploy deep learning models, and show their strengths and potentials in different applications.

FaceX-Zoo: A PyTorch Toolbox for Face Recognition

A novel open-source project, named FaceX-Zoo, which is constructed with modular and scalable design, and oriented to the academic and industrial community of face-related analysis, to help the community to easily build stateof-the-art solutions for deep face recognition.

IARPA Janus Benchmark - C: Face Dataset and Protocol

The IARPA Janus Benchmark–C (IJB-C) face dataset advances the goal of robust unconstrained face recognition, improving upon the previous public domain IJB-B dataset, by increasing dataset size and variability, and by introducing end-to-end protocols that more closely model operational face recognition use cases.
