Can we exploit human visual attention to improve face recognition models?
February 14, 2023 12:30-13:30 CET
The European Association for Biometrics (EAB) is hosting a virtual lunch talk with Dr Marinella Cadoni, assistant professor in computer science at the University of Sassari.
State of the art face detection and recognition algorithms are increasingly focusing on attention, but how do they compare with human attention on faces? Do they “fixate” the same areas as humans do? Can we use human fixations to improve recognition models?
This event will try to answer questions using a human fixations dataset on face images, comparing them to Visual Transformers and using them to build a bottom-up, part-based model for face detection and recognition.
Attendance via Zoom is free but registration is required.
