In this paper, a deep Siamese architecture for depth-based face verification is presented. The proposed approach efficiently verifies if two face images belong to the same person while handling a great variety of head poses and occlusions. The architecture, namely JanusNet, consists in a combination of a depth, a RGB and a hybrid Siamese network. During the training phase, the hybrid network learns to extract complementary mid-level convolutional features which mimic the features of the RGB network, simultaneously leveraging on the light invariance of depth images. At testing time, the model, relying only on depth data, achieves state-of-art results and real time performance, despite the lack of deep-oriented depth-based datasets.

Abstract

In this paper, a deep Siamese architecture for depth-based face verification is presented. The proposed approach efficiently verifies if two face images belong to the same person while handling a great variety of head poses and occlusions. The architecture, namely JanusNet, consists in a combination of a depth, a RGB and a hybrid Siamese network. During the training phase, the hybrid network learns to extract complementary mid-level convolutional features which mimic the features of the RGB network, simultaneously leveraging on the light invariance of depth images. At testing time, the model, relying only on depth data, achieves state-of-art results and real time performance, despite the lack of deep-oriented depth-based datasets.
