Gaze Estimation is a task to predict where a person is looking at given the person’s full face. The task contains two directions: 3-D gaze vector and 2-D gaze position estimation. 3-D gaze vector estimation is to predict the gaze vector, which is usually used in the automotive safety. 2-D gaze position estimation is to predict the horizontal and vertical coordinates on a 2-D screen, which allows utilizing gaze point to control a cursor for human-machine interaction.

With recent progress in graphics, it has become more tractable to train models on synthetic images, potentially avoiding the need for expensive annotations.
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
We introduce a saliency-based distortion layer for convolutional neural networks that helps to improve the spatial sampling of input data for a given task.
We further incorporate our proposed RT-BENE baselines in the recently presented RT-GENE gaze estimation framework where it provides a real-time inference of the openness of the eyes.
