The Face Detection Homepage
by Dr. Robert Frischholz
It is a tribute to Peter Kruizinga’s Face Recognition Homepage
(which unfortunately has disappeared… thanks Peter for all the valuable information over so many years! Click on the above link to still browse the site using the archive of Wayback Machine.)
Here is the successor of the Face Recognition Homepage
Preface: Face recognition is not so much about face recognition at all – it is much more about face detection! It is my (and many others’) strong belief, that the prior step to face recognition, the accurate detection of human faces in arbitrary scenes, is the most important process involved. When faces could be located exactly in any scene, the recognition step afterwards would not be so complicated. That is why this page tries to gather all available information and material about the task of detecting faces
Welcome Researchers around the world!
This site tries to collect all useful information about finding faces. Since much research is going on in this area, the information is grouped into several categories, which are listed on the menu of the page. Please follow those navigation buttons to explore the contents of this site. A short description of the categories:
|Software||Links to public domain or commercial Software (SDK)|
|Datasets||Links to face image databases useful for face finding|
|Links||Links to research sites for face localization|
|Techniques||Explanations and links to common principles of locating faces|
|Online Demos||Web-based face detection demos|
|Publications||Selected publications about facial detection|
|Misc||Some miscellaneous possibly interesting stuff|
Please send me all material that you think should be put here by writing an email to Robert.Frischholz@t-online.de.
Or add comments to the face detection guest-book at my Face Detection Discussion-Group. Thank you!
