Overview

The first Automatic Facial Landmark Detection in-the-Wild Challenge (300-W 2013) to be held
in conjunction with International Conference on Computer Vision 2013, Sydney, Australia.

Automatic
facial landmark detection is a longstanding problem in computer vision, and 300-W Challenge
is the first event of its kind organized exclusively to benchmark the efforts in the field.
The particular focus is on facial landmark detection in real-world datasets of facial images
captured in-the-wild. The results of the Challenge will be presented at the 300-W Faces in-the-Wild
Workshop to be held in conjunction with ICCV 2013.

A special issue of Image and Vision Computing
Journal will present the best performing methods and summarize the results of the Challenge.

Data Annotation

Existing facial databases cover large variations including: different subjects, poses, illumination,
occlusions etc. However, the provided annotations appear to have several limitations.

Figure 1: (a)-(d) Annotated images from MultiPIE, XM2VTS, AR, FRGC Ver.2 databases, and (e)
examples from XM2VTS with inaccurate annotations.

  1. The majority of existing databases provide
    annotations for a relatively small subset of the overall images.
  2. The accuracy of provided
    annotations in some cases is not so good (probably due to human fatigue).
  3. The annotation model of each database consists of different number of landmarks.

These problems
make cross-database experiments and comparisons between different methods almost infeasible.
To overcome these difficulties, we propose a semi-automatic annotation methodology for annotating
massive face datasets. This is the first attempt to create a tool suitable for annotating massive
facial databases.

All the annotations are provided for research purposes ONLY (NO commercial products).
