Abstract

Facial attractiveness computation is a challenging task because of the lack of labeled data and discriminative features. In this paper, an end-to-end label distribution learning (LDL) framework with deep convolutional neural network (CNN) and geometric features is proposed to meet these two challenges. Different from the previous work, we recast this task as an LDL problem. Compared with the single label regression, the LDL could improve the generalization ability of our model significantly. In addition, we propose some kinds of geometric features as well as an incremental feature selection method, which could select hundred-dimensional discriminative geometric features from an exhaustive pool of raw features. More importantly, we find these selected geometric features are complementary to CNN features. Extensive experiments are carried out on the SCUT-FBP dataset, where our approach achieves superior performance in comparison to the state-of-the-arts.
