Facial landmark detection is the task of detecting key landmarks on the face and tracking them (being robust to rigid and non-rigid facial deformations due to head movements and facial expressions).

Facial landmark detection, or face alignment, is a fundamental task that has been extensively studied.

Equivariance to random image transformations is an effective method to learn landmarks of object categories, such as the eyes and the nose in faces, without manual supervision.
A typical approach is to (1) train a detector on the labeled images; (2) generate new training samples using this detector's prediction as pseudo labels of unlabeled images; (3) retrain the detector on the labeled samples and partial pseudo labeled samples.
The proposed approach achieves superior results to existing single-model networks on COCO object detection.

We present a method for highly efficient landmark detection that combines deep convolutional neural networks with well established model-based fitting algorithms.
In this work, we propose a style-aggregated approach to deal with the large intrinsic variance of image styles for facial landmark detection.
Our ExpNet CNN is applied directly to the intensities of a face image and regresses a 29D vector of 3D expression coefficients.
We show that CNNs connected with our Deep Collaboration obtain better accuracy on facial landmark detection with related tasks.
Instead, we compare our FPN with existing methods by evaluating how they affect face recognition accuracy on the IJB-A and IJB-B benchmarks: using the same recognition pipeline, but varying the face alignment method.
