Head pose Estimation Using Convolutional Neural Networks

  title={Head pose Estimation Using Convolutional Neural Networks},
  author={Xingyu Liu},
Head pose estimation is a fundamental problem in computer vision. Several methods has been proposed to solve this problem. Most existing methods use traditional computer vision methods and existing method of using neural networks works on depth bitmaps. In this project, we explore using convolutional neural networks (CNNs) that take RGB image as input to estimate the head pose. We use regression as the estimation approach. We explored the effect of different regularization strength and face…
