Kinship verification is the task of determining whether a parent-child, sibling, or grandparent-grandchild relationship exists between two people and is important in social media applications, forensic investigations, finding missing children, and reuniting families. We demonstrate high quality kinship verification by participating in the 2021 Recognizing Families in the Wild challenge which provides the largest publicly available dataset in the field. Our approach is among the top 3 winning…

Deep Fusion Siamese Network for Automatic Kinship Verification
A deep siamese network is proposed to quantify the relative similarity between two individuals and is integrated into a deep triplet network for tri-subject kinship verification, which is intended to decide whether a child is related to a pair of parents or not.
Kinship Verification on Families in the Wild with Marginalized Denoising Metric Learning
This work proposes a denoising auto-encoder based robust metric learning (DML) framework and its marginalized version (mD ML) to explicitly preserve the intrinsic structure of data and simultaneously endow the discriminative information into the learned features.
Towards computational models of kinship verification
This work conducts a controlled online search to collect frontal face images of 150 pairs of public figures and celebrities, along with images of their parents or children, and proposes and evaluates a set of low-level image features for the challenge of kinship verification.
Families in the Wild (FIW): Large-Scale Kinship Image Database and Benchmarks
This work presents the largest kinship recognition dataset to date, Families in the Wild, and demonstrates that a pre-trained Convolutional Neural Network as an off-the-shelf feature extractor outperforms the other feature types.
KinNet: Fine-to-Coarse Deep Metric Learning for Kinship Verification
Automatic kinship verification has attracted increasing attentions as it holds promise to an abundance of applications. However, existing kinship verification methods suffer from the lack of large
Kinship classification by modeling facial feature heredity
A novel framework for recognizing kinship by modeling this problem as that of reconstructing the query face from a mixture of parts from a set of families, and achieves state-of-the-art family classification performance.
Visual Kinship Recognition of Families in the Wild
It is shown that pre-trained CNN models fine-tuned on FIW outscores other conventional methods and achieved state-of-the art on the renowned KinWild datasets and is statistically compare FIW to related datasets, which unarguably shows enormous gains in overall size and amount of information encapsulated in the labels.
Kinship Verification through Transfer Learning
Experimental results show that the hypothesis on the role of young parents is valid and transfer learning is effective to enhance the verification accuracy and the large gap between distributions can be significantly reduced and kinship verification problem becomesmore discriminative.
Neighborhood repulsed metric learning for kinship verification
This paper proposes a new neighborhood repulsed metric learning (NRML) method for kinship verification, and proposes a multiview NRM-L method to seek a common distance metric to make better use of multiple feature descriptors to further improve the verification performance.
