Topic:3D Face recognition
Department:Katedra kybernetiky
Supervisor:Ing. Vojtěch Franc Ph.D.
Announce as:DP,BP
Description:The current state-of-the-art methods for face recognition are based on black-box Convolutional Neural Networks with no explicit knowledge about the face. As a result training the CNN requires large amounts of annotated facial examples which have to cover all the image variability. The goal of the thesis will be to combine CNNs and 3D face model in order to improve generalization ability of the prediction system and at the same time to reduce the number of annotated training examples. The developed prediction system will be evaluated and compared against existing methods on standard face recognition tasks like gender, age and identity estimation.
