The real-time face detection Centerface

The real-time face detection Centerface

CenterFace.pytorch

unofficial version of centerface, which achieves the best balance between speed and accuracy. Centerface is a practical anchor-free face detection and alignment method for edge devices.

The project provides training scripts, training data sets, and pre-training models to facilitate users to reproduce the results. Finally, thank the centerface's author for the training advice.

performance results on the validation set of WIDER_FACE

use the same train dataset without additional data

Method Easy Medium Hard
ours(one scale) 0.9257 0.9131 0.7717
original 0.922 0.911 0.782
ours(multi-scale) - - -

Requirements

use pytorch, you can use pip or conda to install the requirements

# for pip
cd $project
pip install -r requirements.txt

# for conda
conda env create -f enviroment.yaml

Test

  1. download the pretrained model from Baidu password: fk2n

  2. download the validation set of WIDER_FACE password: y4wg

  3. test on the validation set

cd $project/src
source activate torch110
python test_wider_face.py
  1. calculate the accuracy
cd $project/evaluate
python3 setup.py build_ext --inplace
python evaluation.py --pred {the result folder}

Train

the backbone use mobilev2 as the same with the original paper
The annotation file is in coco format. the annotation file and train data can download for Baidu password: y4wg
train

cd $project/src/tools
source activate torch110
python main.py

Train on your own data

follow the CenterNet


TO DO

  • [ ] use more powerful and small backbone
  • [ ] use other FPN tricks
