Sample and Computation Redistribution for Efficient Face Detection

  title={Sample and Computation Redistribution for Efficient Face Detection},
  author={Jia Guo and Jiankang Deng and Alexandros Lattas and Stefanos Zafeiriou},
Although tremendous strides have been made in uncontrolled face detection, efficient face detection with a low computation cost as well as high precision remains an open challenge. In this paper, we point out that training data sampling and computation distribution strategies are the keys to efficient and accurate face detection. Motivated by these observations, we introduce two simple but effective methods (1) Sample Redistribution (SR), which augments training samples for the most needed…
