FG 2015 Video Person Recognition Evaluation
This competition will address the problem of recognizing
individuals in videos. The individuals in the videos are carrying
out actions such as picking up an object or blowing bubbles; they
are observed by the camera, but the camera is not the individuals'
center of attention. The evaluation emphasizes complicating factors
in video taken by people using common handheld devices in everyday
settings. As a control, it also includes video acquired from a
tripod mounted high quality camera. It is assumed most approaches
will emphasize face recognition, but innovative approaches may use visual
cues beyond just the face.
