Who Is There? Face Recognition Applications

Dept. of Computer Science (December 14, 2015)

SEMINAR SERIES : Distinguished lecture

LENGTH : 70 min.
ACCESS : Open to all
SUMMARY : There are two main drivers of face recognition technology: (i) security, namely, access to restricted areas and personal devices, de-duplication of passports and driver licenses and identifying suspects in surveillance videos, and (ii) social media, where face recognition is useful for automatic tagging of photos. These applications and their requirements have generated tremendous interest in face recognition research and development. While the origins of machine face recognition date back 50 years, the general problem of face recognition is incredibly difficult due to large intra-person face variability: pose, illumination, expression, occlusion, and aging. In other words, different face images of the same person acquired at different times and under different imaging conditions can have quite different appearances that are difficult to match by state of the art systems. Hence, the challenge is to design salient feature extractors and robust matchers for face images. For this reason, convolution neural networks, also known as, deep networks, have played a major role in the new generation of face recognition systems. This talk will address a number of ongoing research projects in my laboratory that include (i) face identification at scale (gallery of 80 million faces), (ii) large-scale face clustering (120 million faces), (iii) longitudinal study of face recognition, and (iv) detection of spoof faces.  [Go to the full record in the library's catalogue]
