Face Anti-Spoofing (FAS) is essential to secure face recognition systems and has been extensively studied in recent years. Although deep neural networks (DNNs) for the FAS task have achieved promising results in intra-dataset experiments with similar distributions of training and testing data, the DNNs’ generalization ability is limited under the cross-domain scenarios with different distributions of training and testing data. To improve the generalization ability, recent hybrid methods have…
