Tutorials

The role of the tutorials is to provide a platform for a more intensive scientific exchange amongst researchers interested in a particular topic and as a meeting point for the community. Tutorials complement the depth-oriented technical sessions by providing participants with broad overviews of emerging fields. A tutorial can be scheduled for 1.5 or 3 hours.

Abstract

Abstract: The computational study of people faces has received an increased interest these years with the development of new technologies such as social media, cybersecurity systems, or autonomous agents. Whilst techniques for face detection and recognition are well established, the automatic analysis of faces captured by digital cameras in unconstrained, real-world environment is still very challenging, since it involves large variations in both acquisition conditions as well as in facial expressions and in pose changes. Thus, this tutorial introduces the topic of the Computational Face in light of the main challenges in that research field and the developed solutions and applications based on computer vision and artificial intelligence methods.

Keywords: Intelligent Vision Systems; Pattern Recognition; Security; Robotics; Assistive Technologies; AI Creativity.

Aims and Learning Objectives: This tutorial aims to present the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of the computer-automated face analysis in constrained and unconstrained environments. Participants are expected to acquire new perspective about the Computational Face challenges and solutions. In more detail, the objectives of this tutorial are: I) To appreciate the Computational Face challenges; II) To understand the corresponding scientific and technique solutions for the automated face analysis; III) To get new trends and future directions of the Computational Face research and industrial applications.

Target Audience: This tutorial is intended for a broad spectrum of participants both from academia and industry.
