Competition Name
Face Segmentation Using Short Video Clips
Overview
Face segmentation varies facial features into semantically identifiable components, an example of physical features include eyes and mouth from face images. Constituting a fine-grained semantic segmentation task, it is more challenging than searching for face contour points or facial key-points. Face segmentation has critical value in face-centered analysis and has numerous industrial applications: Virtual reality, video surveillance, social entertainment, and facial expression analysis, among others.

Competition rules and guidelines

Your team will be provided with 1000 short videos of the manually labeled training set, 200 short videos of the verification set, and 200 short videos of the test set. Videos are on average ten seconds long and based on one frame per second labeling.

Example:
识别标签:
序号中文标签英文标签
1面部皮肤face_skin
2左眉left_eyebrow
3右眉right_eyebrow
4左眼left_eye
5右眼right_eye
6鼻子nose
7下唇lower_lip
8口腔inner_mouth
9上唇upper_lip

12右眼影right_eye_shadow
13左耳left_ear
14右耳right_ear
15帽子hat
16眼镜glasses

Following registration, your team will download the project data to the local debugging algorithm and train the face parsing model to automatically perform face parsing segmentation according to each frame of the input video.

The competition team will release the A-list test set on May 6th. Participating teams will use the trained face analysis model to predict video frame images in the test set, generate a PNG gray-scale image, and then submit the data. List A will be updated daily and the highest ranking results from this stage will be posted. The test set for list B will be released on May 28th, and the final ranking of the competition will be based on list B. Note: the A-list test set is part of the B-list test set.

This competition aims to facilitate academic and creative exchange and to promote the development of graphic technology in China. The source videos used in this contest are collected from publicly available websites in line with relevant copyright rules and should be used for the purposes of this contest only.
