High Performance Face Alignment and Detection
Face analysis problems, such as recognition, detection and alignment, are of central importance in computer vision. While significant advances have been made over the past decades, modern applications have raised even bigger challenges on the accuracy, speed and robustness. In this talk, I will introduce the most recent advances for face alignment and detection performed in vision group of Microsoft Research Asia. I will also discuss their applications in real world scenarios.
