We propose a new general approach to the problem of head pose estimation, based on semi-supervised low-dimensional topographic feature mapping. We show how several recently proposed nonlinear manifold learning methods can be applied in this general framework, and additionally, we present a new algorithm, IsoScale, which combines the best aspects of some of… CONTINUE READING
