Summary of "Accurate Facial Image Parsing at Real-Time Speed."

In this paper, we propose a design scheme for deep learning networks in face parsing task with promising accuracy and real-time inference speed. By analyzing the differences between general image parsing task and face parsing task, we first revisit the structure of traditional FCN and make improvements to adapt to the unique properties of face parsing task. Especially, the concept of Normalized Receptive Field is proposed to give more insights on designing the network. Then a novel loss function called Statistical Contextual Loss is introduced, which integrates richer contextual information and regularizes features during training. For further model acceleration, we propose a semi-supervised distillation scheme that effectively transfers the learned knowledge to a lighter network. Extensive experiments on LFW and Helen dataset demonstrate the significant superiority of the new design scheme on both efficacy and efficiency.

Ultrasonography applying the Doppler effect combined with real-time imaging. The real-time image is created by rapid movement of the ultrasound beam. A powerful advantage of this technique is the ability to estimate the velocity of flow from the Doppler shift frequency.

A visual image which is recalled in accurate detail. It is a sort of projection of an image on a mental screen.

Echocardiography applying the Doppler effect, with the superposition of flow information as colors on a gray scale in a real-time image.

Surgical procedures conducted with the aid of computers. This is most frequently used in orthopedic and laparoscopic surgery for implant placement and instrument guidance. Image-guided surgery interactively combines prior CT scans or MRI images with real-time video.

Endoscopic surgical procedures performed with visualization via video transmission. When real-time video is combined interactively with prior CT scans or MRI images, this is called image-guided surgery (see SURGERY, COMPUTER-ASSISTED).
