Pose Normalization via Learned 2D Warping for Fully Automatic Face Recognition

Asthana, Akshay; Jones, Michael J; Marks, Tim K; Tieu, Kinh H; Goecke, Roland


We present a novel approach to pose-invariant face recognition that handles continuous pose variations, is not database-specific, and achieves high accuracy without any manual intervention. Our method uses multidimensional Gaussian process regression to learn a nonlinear mapping function from the 2D shapes of faces at any non-frontal pose to the corresponding 2D frontal face shapes. We use this mapping to take an input image of a new face at an arbitrary pose and pose-normalize it, generating a...[Show more]
