Face Recognition for Biometrics

The IM2 NCCR kicked-off at the Idiap Research Institute new research directions in facial image analysis (face processing for short) for applications in biometrics and beyond. Indeed, during the first phase of IM2, biometrics was actually an individual project to investigate novel techniques for the recognition (both verification and identification) of individuals with applications in biometrics. During the second phase, the NCCR considered the more general problem of person recognition from audio-visual data with applications to the indexing and retrieval of individual in multimedia recordings from meetings.
