Abstract:Facial marks like freckles, moles, scars, pockmarks have been used in the past to identify individuals. There have been developed systems integrating both Facial Marks de- tection with Facial Recognition [17] [2], which showed im- proved performance over only using Facial Recognition. These systems used classic blob detection approaches like LoG (Laplacian of Gaussian) or Fast Radial Symmetry Transform for detecting facial marks, which gave a lot of False Positives, or had people manually annotate fa- cial marks, which is too time consuming. Although there have been significant improvements in detecting Facial Marks using a Convolutional Neural Network, a system integrating this new approach with facial detection has not been implemented yet. This paper improves the state- of-the art in Facial Marks detection by using CNNs with deeper architectures and shows that a system combining a state-of-the-art algorithm in Facial Recognition with a Fa- cial Marks Systems outperforms one that only uses Facial Recognition, especially in the case of monozygotic twins.
