Improving Facial Attribute Recognition by Group and Graph Learning

Exploiting the relationships between attributes is a key challenge for improving multiple facial attribute recognition. In this work, we are concerned with two types of correlations that are spatial and non-spatial relationships... For the spatial correlation, we aggregate attributes with spatial similarity into a part-based group and then introduce a Group Attention Learning to generate the group attention and the part-based group feature. On the other hand, to discover the non-spatial relationship, we model a group-based Graph Correlation Learning to explore affinities of predefined part-based groups. We utilize such affinity information to control the communication between all groups and then refine the learned group features. Overall, we propose a unified network called Multi-scale Group and Graph Network. It incorporates these two newly proposed learning strategies and produces coarse-to-fine graph-based group features for improving facial attribute recognition. Comprehensive experiments demonstrate that our approach outperforms the state-of-the-art methods. read more
