Unsupervised Facial Landmark Detection

13 papers with code • 6 benchmarks • 3 datasets

Facial landmark detection in the unsupervised setting popularized by [1]. The evaluation occurs in two stages: (1) Embeddings are first learned in an unsupervised manner (i.e. without labels); (2) A simple regressor is trained to regress landmarks from the unsupervised embedding.

Deforming Autoencoders: Unsupervised Disentangling of Shape and Appearance

zhixinshu/DeformingAutoencoders-pytorch ECCV 2018

In this work we introduce Deforming Autoencoders, a generative model for images that disentangles shape from appearance in an unsupervised manner.

Unsupervised Learning of Object Landmarks through Conditional Image Generation

tomasjakab/imm NeurIPS 2018

We propose a method for learning landmark detectors for visual objects (such as the eyes and the nose in a face) without any manual supervision.

Deep Feature Factorization For Concept Discovery

jacobgil/pytorch-grad-cam ECCV 2018

We propose Deep Feature Factorization (DFF), a method capable of localizing similar semantic concepts within an image or a set of images.

Self-supervised learning of a facial attribute embedding from video

oawiles/FAb-Net 21 Aug 2018

We propose a self-supervised framework for learning facial attributes by simply watching videos of a human face speaking, laughing, and moving over time.

Unsupervised Part-Based Disentangling of Object Shape and Appearance

NVIDIA/UnsupervisedLandmarkLearning CVPR 2019

Large intra-class variation is the result of changes in multiple object characteristics.
