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…

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.

A Comprehensive Study on Loss Functions for Cross-Factor Face Recognition

An attractive finding of this study is that the cross-age performance is the lowest among the four factors with a clear margin, which highlight possible directions for future research.

Deep Face Recognition: A Survey

Age invariant face recognition: a survey on facial aging databases, techniques and effect of aging

A survey of techniques, effects of aging on performance analysis and facial aging databases, and discussions on the findings, conclusions and future directions for new researchers are presented.

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.

An Open Source Framework for Standardized Comparisons of Face Recognition Algorithms

In this paper we introduce the facereclib, the first software library that allows to compare a variety of face recognition algorithms on most of the known facial image databases and that permits

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.
