MorphGAN: One-Shot Face Synthesis GAN for Detecting Recognition Bias

  booktitle={British Machine Vision Conference},
To detect bias in face recognition networks, it can be useful to probe a network under test using samples in which only specific attributes vary in some controlled way. However, capturing a sufficiently large dataset with specific control over the attributes of interest is difficult. In this work, we describe a simulator that applies specific head pose and facial expression adjustments to images of previously unseen people. The simulator first fits a 3D morphable model to a provided image…

Controllable and Guided Face Synthesis for Unconstrained Face Recognition

A controllable face synthesis model that can mimic the distribution of target datasets in a style latent space with precise control over the diversity and degree of synthesis and yields significant performance gains on unconstrained bench-marks.

Simulated Adversarial Testing of Face Recognition Models

This work proposes a framework for learning how to test machine learning algorithms using simulators in an adversarial manner in order to find weaknesses in the model before deploying it in critical scenarios, and presents a method to find adversarial regions as opposed to the typical adversarial points found in the adversarial example literature.

3D human tongue reconstruction from single “in-the-wild” images

This work presents the first, to the best of their knowledge, end-to-end trainable pipeline that accurately reconstructs the 3D face together with the tongue, and makes this pipeline robust in “in-the-wild” images by introducing a novel GAN method tailored for 3D tongue surface generation.



Cross-Domain Face Synthesis using a Controllable GAN

A cross-domain face synthesis approach is proposed that integrates a new Controllable GAN (C-GAN) that employs an off-the-shelf 3D face model as a simulator to generate facial images under various poses and relies on an additional adversarial game as a third player to preserve the identity and specific facial attributes of the refined images.

UV-GAN: Adversarial Facial UV Map Completion for Pose-Invariant Face Recognition

A framework for training Deep Convolutional Neural Network (DCNN) to complete the facial UV map extracted from in-the-wild images, and devise a meticulously designed architecture that combines local and global adversarial DCNNs to learn an identity-preserving facial UV completion model.

GANimation: Anatomically-aware Facial Animation from a Single Image

A novel GAN conditioning scheme based on Action Units (AU) annotations, which describes in a continuous manifold the anatomical facial movements defining a human expression, and proposes a fully unsupervised strategy to train the model, that only requires images annotated with their activated AUs.
