face detection cascade structure neural network fully convolutional networks unconstrained condition
To overcome the problem that most of the methods based on depth learning cannot get a balance between speed and accuracy when directly extracting the depth of abstract features. This paper proposes a face detection method based on cascade neural network by combining traditional cascade framework with from-shallow-to-deep convolutional neural network. Firstly,this paper selects candidate face regions by means of fusing the confidence maps of images with part and full faces based on full convolutional neural network. Secondly,this paper extracts robust features of face to validate the candidate regions. Simultaneously,this paper locates the face with combined regression to improve the detection accuracy. In the experiments,the proposed method achieves comparable or better accuracy and speed on FDDB,AFW benchmarks.
