BSc Thesis: Facial Expression Recognition in the Wild
by Luca Rolshoven
Date: Thursday, Sep. 12
Time: 09:00
Location: CVG headquarters

Luca Rolshoven will present his BSc thesis on Thursday. 


This presentation will focus on my bachelor thesis and the topic of facial expression recognition. While researchers achieve good results on images that were taken in laboratories under the same or at least similar conditions, the performance on more arbitrary images with different head poses and illumination is still quite poor. My presentation will focus on the latter setting and will talk about available datasets, challenges and the work that has been done so far. Moreover, I will present my model STN-COV, which is a slightly modified version of a popular neural network architecture. With this model, I was able to achieve comparable results to the current state of the art.
