Using recognition models on face attributes
Face attribute models are used for retrieval tasks like "find all actors with green eyes and curly hair" or for applications used to measure emotional states like smiling / not-smiling. We investigate model architectures, loss functions and training sets to determine the optimal combination for distinguishing facial attributes in a weakly-supervised setting. We then compared platform.ai’s default model against our new model, using a variety of projections based on linear and non-linear dimensionality reduction methods and discovered that the new model can more easily identify attributes like gender, race, age, baldness, hair color and attractiveness.
