Face detection and recognition benchmarks have shifted toward more difficult environments. [...] Key Result By contrast, open-set face recognition is currently weak and requires much more attention.Expand
Face re-identification challenge: Are face recognition models good enough?
TLDR
A true large scale Surveillance Face Re-ID benchmark (SurvFace) is introduced, characterised by natively low-resolution, motion blur, uncontrolled poses, varying occlusion, poor illumination, and background clutters, where facial images are captured and detected under realistic surveillance scenarios.

Face Detection on Surveillance Images
TLDR
Experimental results show that, the proposed method that leverages body information to detect faces, is the most realistic approach in terms of accuracy, false alarms and average detection time, when surveillance scenario is in consideration. Expand
Context-Aware Face Detection for Occluded Faces
Detecting of occluded faces is a real challenge for face detection in the computer vision area. This challenge tends to be higher when the occlusion is more than half of the face. Regardless to theExpand
Surveillance Face Recognition Challenge
TLDR
It is shown that the current state of the arts are still far from being satisfactory to tackle the under-investigated surveillance FR problem in practical forensic scenarios, and introduces a new Surveillance Face Recognition Challenge, which is the largest and more importantly the only true surveillance FR benchmark, where low-resolution images are not synthesised by artificial down-sampling of native high- resolution images.
