SphereFace: Deep Hypersphere Embedding for Face Recognition

CVPR 2017 Weiyang LiuYandong WenZhiding YuMing LiBhiksha RajLe Song

This paper addresses deep face recognition (FR) problem under open-set protocol, where ideal face features are expected to have smaller maximal intra-class distance than minimal inter-class distance under a suitably chosen metric space. However, few existing algorithms can effectively achieve this criterion... (read more)
