Before the middle 90’s, the research attention was only focused on single-face segmentation. The approaches included:
During the past ten years, considerable progress has been made in multi-face recognition area, includes:
Face segmentation/detection area still remain active, for example:
Still lots of potential!
Numerous face recognition methods/algorithms have been proposed in last 20 years, several representative approaches are:
The basic steps are:
Most video-based face recognition system has three modules for detection, tracking and recognition.
Two most representative and important protocols for face recognition evaluations:
