SFace: An Efficient Network for Face Detection in Large Scale Variations

04/18/2018 ∙ by Jianfeng Wang, et al. ∙ 0

Face detection serves as a fundamental research topic for many applications like face recognition. Impressive progress has been made especially with the recent development of convolutional neural networks. However, the issue of large scale variations, which widely exists in high resolution images/videos, has not been well addressed in the literature. In this paper, we present a novel algorithm called SFace, which efficiently integrates the anchor-based method and anchor-free method to address the scale issues. A new dataset called 4K-Face is also introduced to evaluate the performance of face detection with extreme large scale variations. The SFace architecture shows promising results on the new 4K-Face benchmarks. In addition, our method can run at 50 frames per second (fps) with an accuracy of 80 which outperforms the state-of-art algorithms by almost one order of magnitude in speed while achieves comparative performance.
