报告题目：Deep Learning for Analysis and Generation of Facial Attributes
报告摘要：Face analysis is a fundamental and challenging problem in computer vision. For face an-alysis, one of the fundamental techniques is face alignment which is usually employed as the preprocessing step. For instance, when we do face verification, the faces need to be aligned first. On top of that, face pose and facial expression normalization is also a very important preprocessing step. In addition to the disturbance of the poses and expression,another very important factor that might degrade the performance of face verification is age. Thus , modeling the aging process of human faces is important for cross-age faces verification and recognition. Similar to face verification, a face aging task also needs to normalize the face poses and expressions, and many works have been proposed to nor-malize for facial expressions. However, only a few works have studied how to generate faces having various expressions, such as spontaneous or posed smiles. In this presenta-tion, we will present our recent results on face alignment, face aging, and smile videos generation employing recurrent neural networks, such as the Long Short Term Memory(LSTM) and the Gated Recurrent Unit (GRU).
