Repousser les limites de l'identification faciale en contexte de vidéo-surveillance

Abstract : The person identification systems based on face recognition are becoming increasingly widespread and are being used in very diverse applications, particularly in the field of video surveillance. In this context, the performance of the facial recognition algorithms largely depends on the image acquisition context, especially because the pose can vary, but also because the acquisition methods themselves can introduce artifacts. The main issues are focus imprecision, which can lead to blurred images, or the errors related to compression, which can introduce the block artifact. The work done during the thesis focuses on facial recognition in images taken by video surveillance cameras, in cases where the images contain blur or block artifacts or show various poses. First, we are proposing a new approach that allows to significantly improve facial recognition in images with high blur levels or with strong block artifacts. The method, which makes use of specific noreference metrics, starts with the evaluation of the quality level of the input image and then adapts the training database of the recognition algorithms accordingly. Second, we have focused on the facial pose estimation. Normally, it is very difficult to recognize a face in an image taken from another viewpoint than the frontal one and the majority of facial identification algorithms which are robust to pose variation need to know the pose in order to achieve a satisfying recognition rate in a relatively short time. We have therefore developed a fast and satisfying pose estimation method based on recent recognition techniques.
