Abstract


Although research in face detection and recognition has achieved tremendous progress through the various frameworks that are being put forward every year, face detection under complex circumstances is still a challenging issue. Multiple task-driven face detection has wide applications, such as crowd number estimation, face recognition attendance and so on. In this paper, we propose a multiple task-driven cascade detection networks based on super-resolution Pyramid, to effectively tackle the following challenges in face detection: low-resolution faces under the lens; faces from blur, illumination, scale, pose, expression and occlusion. Our method integrates the advantages of the super-resolution technology and an efficient image pyramid structure. The design of this structure not only recover high frequency information lost in the sampling process, but also can handle multi-scale invariants. Also, facial landmarks play non-negligible roles during detection. Our method achieves state-of-the-art results over prior arts on both the WIDER FACE dataset and the Face Detection Dataset and Benchmark (FDDB), and our results show a higher average detection precision of 90%. Notably, we demonstrate superior performance and robustness in a challenging environment.
