Face Presentation Attacks: Physical and Digital

Slides (pdf)  Size: 67.7MB


With the wide deployment of face recognition systems, there are increasing varieties of attacks to the face biometric systems. They include physical attacks such as face spoofing, as well as digital attacks such as adversarial attack and digital manipulation. How to develop effective detection algorithms to defend against these various attacks is becoming an emerging topic in biometrics. This talk will survey the recent efforts in developing detection algorithms for all three types of attacks, and discuss some of the future research directions.
