Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent decades, a lot of attention has been devoted to the successful development of facial recognition, which is often preceded by the classical techniques of face detection. However, face detection has also recently become an important topic, and this is particularly due to the development of new machine learning methods. These recent methods make it possible to tackle new challenges in image processing (face detection in a crowd, face tracking, painting analysis, etc.) with high performance. Thus, the aim of this Special Issue is to collect leading recent advances in face detection using practicable algorithms based on CNNs, GANs, etc.

Recently, Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) have become a central subject of discussion in computer vision for a broad range of applications, including image classification and face recognition. Compared to existing conventional machine learning methods, deep learning algorithms have shown prominent performance with high accuracy and speed. However, they always require a large amount of data to achieve adequate robustness. Furthermore, additional samples are time-consuming and expensive to collect. In this paper, we propose an approach that combines generative methods and basic manipulations for image data augmentations and the FaceNet model with Support Vector Machine (SVM) for face recognition. To do so, the images were first preprocessed by a Deep Convolutional Generative Adversarial Net (DCGAN) to generate samples having realistic properties inseparable from those of the original datasets. Second, basic manipulations were applied on the images produced by DCGAN in order to increase the amount of training data. Finally, FaceNet was employed as a face recognition model. FaceNet detects faces using MTCNN, 128-D face embedding is computed to quantify each face, and an SVM was used on top of the embeddings for classification. Experiments carried out on the LFW and VGG image databases and ChokePoint video database demonstrate that the combination of basic and generative methods for augmentation boosted face recognition performance, leading to better recognition results.
