About FACER2VM

FACER2VM is a five-year research programme aimed at making face recognition ubiquitous by 2020.

Goal

The goal of the programme, FACER2VM, is to advance the science of machine face perception and to deliver step change in face matching technology to enable automatic retrieval, recognition, verification and management of faces in images and video.

This will be achieved by addressing the challenging problem posed by face appearance variations introduced by a range of natural and image degradation phenomena such as change of viewpoint, illumination, expression, resolution, blur and occlusion, by bringing together leading experts and their research teams at the University of Surrey, Imperial College London, and the University of Stirling.
