Caricaturing faces to improve identity recognition in low vision simulations: How effective is current-generation automatic assignment of landmark points?

McKone, Elinor; Robbins, Rachel; He, Xuming; Barnes, Nick


Purpose: Previous behavioural studies demonstrate that face caricaturing can provide an effective image enhancement method for improving poor face identity perception in low vision simulations (e.g., age-related macular degeneration, bionic eye). To translate caricaturing usefully to patients, assignment of the multiple face landmark points needed to produce the caricatures needs to be fully automatised. Recent development in computer science allows automatic face landmark detection of 68...[Show more]
