FACEDETECT - Face Detection
This project was a part of a PhD thesis work and was done in collaboration with another international research partner. The group at LUT mainly contributed by providing a method for robust and accurate detection and extraction of local image features (face parts).
This project was a collaborative effort between the Centre for Vision, Speech, and Signal Processing (CVSSP), University of Surrey, UK and Laboratory of Information Processing, Lappeenranta University of Technology.
Most importantly, this project, and especially the impressive results achieved, lead to a more challening and broader research topic: OBJECT - Object Detection, Localisation and Recognition.
Project has ended, but the work continues...
