Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) have been applied to age-related research as the core framework. Although faces are composed of numerous facial attributes, most works with CNNs still consider a face as a typical object and do not pay enough attention to facial regions that carry age-specific feature for this particular task. In this paper, we propose a novel CNN architecture called Fusion Network (FusionNet) to tackle the age estimation problem.

This paper addresses the problem of automated recognition of faces and facial attributes by proposing a new general approach called Accumulative Local Sparse Representation (ALSR). In the learning stage, we build a general dictionary of patches that are extracted from face images in a dense manner on a grid. In the testing stage, patches of the query image are sparsely represented using a \em local dictionary. This dictionary contains similar atoms of the general dictionary that are spatially in the same neighborhood.

This paper deals with electroencephalography (EEG)-based biometric identification, using a motor imagery task, specifically
performing imaginary arms and legs movements. Deep learning methods such as convolutional neural network (CNN) is used for automatic discriminative feature extraction and person identification. An extensive set of experimental tests, performed on a large database comprising EEG data collected from 40 subjects over two different sessions taken at a week distance, shows the existence of repeatable discriminative characteristics in individuals’ brain signals.

In order to enhance the security of automatic speaker verification (ASV) systems, automatic spoofing attack detection, which discriminates the fake audio recordings from genuine human speech, has gain much attention recently. Among various ways of spoofing attacks, replay attacks are one of the most effective and economical methods. In this paper, we explore using recurrent neural networks for automatic replay spoofing attack detection.

Automatic quality evaluation of infrared images has not been researched as extensively as for images of the visible spectrum. Moreover, there is a lack of studies on the influence of degradation of image quality on the performance of computer vision tasks operating on thermal images. Here, we quantify the impact of common image distortions on infrared face recognition, and present a method for aggregating perceptual quality-aware features to improve the identification rates.

Person re-identification that aims at matching individuals across multiple camera views has become indispensable in intelligent video surveillance systems. It remains challenging due to the large variations of pose, illumination, occlusion and camera viewpoint. Feature representation and metric learning are the two fundamental components in person re-identification.
