OpenFace 2.0: Facial Behavior Analysis Toolkit
TLDR
OpenFace 2.0 is an extension of OpenFace toolkit and is capable of more accurate facial landmark detection, head pose estimation, facial action unit recognition, and eye-gaze estimation.
Face frontalization for facial expression recognition in the wild
TLDR
A novel Facial Expression-Aware face Frontalization (FEAF) method based on spatial normalization strategy is introduced and a cascade regression model to learn the pair-wise relationship between non-frontal facial shape and its frontal counterpart is developed.
Comparisons of Facial Recognition Algorithms Through a Case Study Application
TLDR
The evaluations of the test cases indicate that among the compared facial recognition algorithms the OpenFace algorithm has the highest accuracy to identify faces and the practitioner and academician are advised on how to improve the accuracy of the current algorithms even further.
REAL-TIME HEAD POSE ESTIMATION WITH SVM MODEL FOR FRONTAL FACE CLASSIFICATION
TLDR
A framework for estimation of the head pose was proposed computing the degrees of freedom (DOF) of the human head using 2D images data only and it was shown that the approach is capable of real-time performance.
Automatic annotation of facial actions from a video record: The case of eyebrows raising and frowning
TLDR
This work proposes a tool which allow to extract eyebrows raising and frowning from the output of two state-of-the-art facial behavior analysis softwares (OpenFace and IntraFace), and suggests that the tool can be used with benefits for automatic annotation purpose.
Hand2Face: Automatic synthesis and recognition of hand over face occlusions
TLDR
A novel framework for synthesizing naturalistic facial occlusions from an initial dataset of non-occluded faces and separate images of hands is introduced, reducing the costly process of data collection and annotation.
OpenMM: An Open-Source Multimodal Feature Extraction Tool
TLDR
The OpenMM is built upon existing open-source repositories to present the first publicly available tool for multimodal feature extraction, and provides a pipeline for researchers to easily extract visual and acoustic features.
3D Head Pose Estimation through Facial Features and Deep Convolutional Neural Networks
TLDR
This paper has developed an end to end face parts segmentation framework through deep convolutional neural networks (DCNNs) for training a deep face parts parsing model, and assess the performance of the newly proposed model on four standard head pose datasets.
Evaluating OpenFace: an open-source automatic facial comparison algorithm for forensics
TLDR
OpenFace in its current form is inadequate for application to forensics, but can be improved to offer promising uses in the field.
Cascade Regression-Based Face Frontalization for Dynamic Facial Expression Analysis
TLDR
The experimental results demonstrate that the proposed cascade regression-based face frontalization (CRFF) method has achieved expression-preserving frontalization, de-occlusion and has improved performance of facial expression recognition.
