Face Detection and Recognition

The detection and recognition of human faces has innumerable applications in security, surveillance, and consumer applications. LIVE has engaged in perceptual aspects of human face detection for several years, including the use of anthropometric features, 3D face recognition, and the use of quality-aware features to improve face detection in difficult, distorted images. Some of the key papers follow:
