Face processing is a term introduced at the first international workshop on face processing in video (FPiV’04) to describe image processing tasks related to extraction and manipulation of information about human faces. The most common of these tasks are face segmentation, face detection, face tracking, face modeling, eye localization, face reconstruction, face quality and resolution improvement, best face shot selection, face classification, facial expression recognition, face memorization, and face identification.
