Researchers evaluate deep-learning and face recognition

A team of scientists from Istanbul, Turkey have completed an evaluation of deep-learning based approaches, stating that these have been dominating the face recognition field due to the significant performance improvement they have provided on the challenging wild datasets. Mostafa Mehdipour Ghazia and Hazım Kemal Ekenel, from the Sabanci University, and Istanbul Technical University have evaluated the performance of deep learning based face representation under several conditions, including the varying head pose angles, upper and lower face occlusion, changing illumination of different strengths, and misalignment due to erroneous facial feature localization. Prior to an emergence of deep learning algorithms, the majority of traditional face recognition methods used to first locally extract hand-crafted shallow features from facial images using Local Binary Patterns (LBP), Scale Invariant Feature Transform (SIFT), and Histogram of…
