FaceBoxes: A CPU Real-time Face Detector with High Accuracy

17 Aug 2017Shifeng ZhangXiangyu ZhuZhen LeiHailin ShiXiaobo WangStan Z. Li

Although tremendous strides have been made in face detection, one of the remaining open challenges is to achieve real-time speed on the CPU as well as maintain high performance, since effective models for face detection tend to be computationally prohibitive. To address this challenge, we propose a novel face detector, named FaceBoxes, with superior performance on both speed and accuracy... (read more)
