FaceNet: A Unified Embedding for Face Recognition and Clustering

CVPR 2015 Florian SchroffDmitry KalenichenkoJames Philbin

Despite significant recent advances in the field of face recognition, implementing face verification and recognition efficiently at scale presents serious challenges to current approaches. In this paper we present a system, called FaceNet, that directly learns a mapping from face images to a compact Euclidean space where distances directly correspond to a measure of face similarity...
