2016 Looking at People CVPR Challenge

ChaLearn LAP and FotW Challenge and Workshop @ CVPR2016
Face Analysis Workshop and Challenge

Caesar's Palace, Las Vegas, Nevada

June 26, 2016

ChaLearn organizes for CVPR2016 three parallel quantitative challenge tracks on RGB face analysis.


 

Track 1: Apparent Age Estimation: An extended version of the previous ICCV2015 challenge dataset. It contains 8,000 images each displaying a single individual, labeled with the apparent age. Each image has been labeled by multiple individuals, using a collaborative Facebook implementation and Amazon Mechanical Turk. The votes variance is used as a measure of the error for the predictions. This is the first state of the art database for Apparent Age Recognition rather than Real Age recognition.

Track 2: Complements and Accessories detection: The aim of this track is to detect and classify complements and accessories worn by the subjects. It is based on the Faces of the World dataset, a challenging dataset consiting of 50,000 images displaying a varable number of people in uncontrolled environments. 


Track 3: Gender and Expression Estimation: In this track, participants will have to classify images of the FotW dataset according to gender (male, female or other) and basic expression (smiling, neutral or other expression). Along with accurate face detection and aligment, this track will require robust feature selection and extraction in order to identify the subject’s gender and expression, which can be difficult to classify even to the human eye in uncontrolled environments such as those present in the FotW dataset.



Top three ranked participants on each track will receive a prize according to the available budget, and invited to follow the workshop submission guide for inclusion of a description of their system at the CVPR 2016 conference proceedings.
