Paper Abstract

Age is an inherent biological characteristic of human and is reflected in facial images to a certain extent. A method for estimating age from a facial image by combining CNN (Convolution Neural Network) with SVR (Support Vector Regression) is proposed. First, a deep CNN is trained to automatically extract age features from facial images and classify them into variant age groups. Then different SVRs are trained for each age group to estimate the age of a facial image. The experimental results show that a lower MAE (Mean Absolute Error) of age estimation on MORPH database is obtained.
