Face Recognition: Perspectives from the Real-World

Bappaditya Mandal

Face recognition is intuitive in nature and people have high expectations of its performance in real-world scenarios. Each of these applications poses unique challenges and demands specific research components.

Abstract

In this paper, we analyze some of our real-world deployment of face recognition (FR) systems for various applications and discuss the gaps between expectations of the user and what the system can deliver. We evaluate some of our proposed algorithms with ad-hoc modifications for applications such as FR on wearable devices (like Google Glass), monitoring of elderly people in senior citizens centers, FR of children in child care centers and face matching between a scanned IC/passport face image and a few live webcam images for automatic hotel/resort checkouts. We describe each of these applications, the challenges involved and proposed solutions. Since FR is intuitive in nature and we human beings use it for interactions with the outside world, people have high expectations of its performance in real-world scenarios. However, we analyze and discuss here that it is not the case, machine recognition of faces for each of these applications poses unique challenges and demands specific research components so as to adapt in the actual sites.

Face Detection in Repeated Settings
Face detection is an important first step before face verification andrecognition. In unconstrained settings it is still an open challenge because of variation in pose, lighting, scale, background and location. We present a correlation based face detection algorithm to detect faces.

Leveraging Billions of Faces to Overcome Performance Barriers in Unconstrained Face Recognition
We employ the face recognition technology developed in house at face.com. We show that without any tuning we are able to surpass state of the art results. Much of the improvement is focused in the high-valued performance point of zero false positive matches.

Face Alignment In-the-Wild: A Survey
Face alignment or localizing fiducial facial points has received increasing attention over the last two decades. However, such a task has proven extremely challenging in unconstrained environments due to many confounding factors. In this survey, we present an up-to-date critical review of the existing
