Convolutional neural networks have reached extremely high performances on the Face Recognition task. These models are commonly trained by using high-resolution images and for this reason, their discrimination ability is usually degraded when they are tested against low-resolution images. Thus, Low-Resolution Face Recognition remains an open challenge for deep learning models. Such a scenario is of particular interest for surveillance systems in which it usually happens that a low-resolution… Expand
