Title: Face Relighting and Morphing*
Prof. Baba Vemuri, http://www.cise.ufl.edu/~vemuri/
Date & Time: August 2, 2010 11:35
Venue: Conference Room, First floor
Modeling illumination effects and pose variations of a face is of fundamental importance in the field of facial image analysis. Most of the conventional techniques that simultaneously address both of these problems work with the Lambertian assumption and thus, fall short of accurately capturing the complex intensity variation that the facial images exhibit, or recovering their 3D shape in presence of specularities and cast shadows. In this talk, I will present a novel Tensor Spline based framework for facial image analysis. I will show that using this framework, the facial apparent BRDF field can be accurately estimated while seamlessly accounting for cast shadows and specularities. Further, using local neighborhood information, the same framework can be exploited to recover the 3D shape of the face (to handle pose variation). I will demonstrate the effectiveness of our technique by presenting several experimental results on face relighting and 3D shape recovery,
