A Hierarchical Bayesian Network For Face Recognition Using 2D And 3D Facial Data
Iman Abbasnejad, Damien Teney

In this paper, we tackle the problem of face classification and verification. We present a novel face representation method based on a Bayesian network. The model captures dependencies between 2D salient facial regions and the full 3D geometrical model of the face, which makes it robust to pose variations, and useable in unconstrained environments. We present experiments on the challenging databases FERET and LFW, which show a significant advantage over state-of-the-art methods.
