Face alignment is the task of identifying the geometric structure of faces in digital images, and attempting to obtain a canonical alignment of the face based on translation, scale, and rotation.

To this end, we make the following 5 contributions: (a) we construct, for the first time, a very strong baseline by combining a state-of-the-art architecture for landmark localization with a state-of-the-art residual block, train it on a very large yet synthetically expanded 2D facial landmark dataset and finally evaluate it on all other 2D facial landmark datasets.
Ranked #1 on Face Alignment on LS3D-W Balanced
Our method builds upon the idea of convolutional part heatmap regression , extending it for 3D face alignment.
Ranked #1 on Face Alignment on 3DFAW
Our CNN works with just a single 2D facial image, does not require accurate alignment nor establishes dense correspondence between images, works for arbitrary facial poses and expressions, and can be used to reconstruct the whole 3D facial geometry (including the non-visible parts of the face) bypassing the construction (during training) and fitting (during testing) of a 3D Morphable Model.
Ranked #3 on 3D Face Reconstruction on Florence
We propose a straightforward method that simultaneously reconstructs the 3D facial structure and provides dense alignment.
Ranked #1 on 3D Face Reconstruction on AFLW2000-3D
Firstly, on the basis of a lightweight backbone, we propose a meta-joint optimization strategy to dynamically regress a small set of 3DMM parameters, which greatly enhances speed and accuracy simultaneously.
Ranked #1 on Face Alignment on AFLW2000-3D
In this paper, we propose to tackle these three challenges in an new alignment framework termed 3D Dense Face Alignment (3DDFA), in which a dense 3D Morphable Model (3DMM) is fitted to the image via Cascaded Convolutional Neural Networks.
Ranked #2 on Face Alignment on AFLW
Face detection and alignment in unconstrained environment are challenging due to various poses, illuminations and occlusions.
Ranked #14 on Face Detection on WIDER Face (Easy)
Estimating the head pose of a person is a crucial problem that has a large amount of applications such as aiding in gaze estimation, modeling attention, fitting 3D models to video and performing face alignment.
Ranked #3 on Head Pose Estimation on AFLW2000
Our method uses entire face images at all stages, contrary to the recently proposed face alignment methods that rely on local patches.
