In this talk, I will mainly introduce deep learning and its applications in face recognition, analysis and translation. The history of face recognition using hand-crafted features and deep neural networks will be firstly briefed. Publicly available face datasets for both training and testing will be introduced. The most recent progress about the performance of facial recognition algorithms and their real applications will be followed. The methodologies to address face spoofing and classification of facial attributes including age, gender and expressions will be explored. Finally, the progress about face translation using GAN, pix2pix, starGAN and our proposed GAN will be presented.
