Title
(EN) Method and apparatus for analyzing facial image
Abstract
(EN)

A method to analyze a facial image includes: inputting a facial image to a residual network including residual blocks that are sequentially combined and arranged in a direction from an input to an output; processing the facial image using the residual network; and acquiring an analysis map from an output of an N-th residual block among the residual blocks using a residual deconvolution network, wherein the residual network transfers the output of the N-th residual block to the residual deconvolution network, and N is a natural number that is less than a number of all of the residual blocks, and wherein the residual deconvolution network includes residual deconvolution blocks that are sequentially combined, and the residual deconvolution blocks correspond to respective residual blocks from a first residual block among the residual blocks to the N-th residual block.
