Face Detection Publications

Outstanding publications: From Hausdorff and Viola Jones up to Deep Learning

I recommend to use Google Scholar to research face detection publications. Just search for "face detection" and enjoy millions of publication links! (As of March 2015: over 2.880.000 now!)

Viola Jones 2001-2004:

This was a major breakthrough in face detection technology. Paul Viola and Michael Jones showed how a huge cascade of simple classifiers can yield impressive results using Adaboost training. Their algorithm was implemented in the OpenCV Framework and was probably the most widely spread technique for locating faces since then. Their work made it onto Wikipedia.
