Binarized Convolutional Landmark Localizers for Human Pose Estimation and Face Alignment with Limited Resources

ICCV 2017 Adrian BulatGeorgios Tzimiropoulos

Our goal is to design architectures that retain the groundbreaking performance of CNNs for landmark localization and at the same time are lightweight, compact and suitable for applications with limited computational resources. To this end, we make the following contributions: (a) we are the first to study the effect of neural network binarization on localization tasks, namely human pose estimation and face alignment...
