Selective Refinement Network for High Performance Face Detection

7 Sep 2018Cheng ChiShifeng ZhangJunliang XingZhen LeiStan Z. LiXudong Zou

High performance face detection remains a very challenging problem, especially when there exists many tiny faces. This paper presents a novel single-shot face detector, named Selective Refinement Network (SRN), which introduces novel two-step classification and regression operations selectively into an anchor-based face detector to reduce false positives and improve location accuracy simultaneously...
