Paper Abstract

Face detection and alignment are two crucial tasks to face recognition which is a hot topic in the field of defense and security, whatever for the safety of social public, personal property as well as information and communication security. Common approaches toward the treatment of these tasks in recent years are often of three types: template matching-based, knowledge-based and machine learning-based, which are always separate-step, high computation cost or fragile robust. After deep analysis on a great deal of Chinese face images without hats, we propose a novel face detection and coarse alignment method, which is inspired by those three types of methods. It is multi-feature fusion with Simple Multiple Kernel Learning1 (Simple-MKL) algorithm. The proposed method is contrasted with competitive and related algorithms, and demonstrated to achieve promising results.
