Removing pose from face images

Begley, Seán, Mallon, John and Whelan, Paul F. orcid logoORCID: 0000-0001-9230-7656 (2008) Removing pose from face images. In: 4th International Symposium on Visual Computing (ISVC08), 1-3 Dec 2008, Las Vegas, NA.

This paper proposes a novel approach to pose removal from face images based on the inherent symmetry that is present in faces. In order for face recognition systems and expression classification systems to operate optimally, subjects must look directly into the camera. The removal of pose from face images after their capture removes this restriction. To obtain a pose-removed face image, the frequency components at each position of the face image, obtained through a wavelet transformation, are examined. A cost function based on the symmetry of this wavelet transformed face image is minimized to achieve pose removal.Experimental results are presented that demonstrate that the proposed algorithm improves upon existing techniques in the literature.
