Description of the postdoctoral project
Face perception and categorization is fundamental to social
interactions. In humans, input from facial features is integrated with
top-down influences from other cognitive domains, such as expectations,
memories and contextual knowledge. In contrast to human perception,
automatic systems of face processing are typically based purely on
bottom-up information without considering factors as prior knowledge.
The aim of this project is therefore to bridge the gap between human and
synthetic face processing by integrating top-down components typical for
human perception into synthetic systems. The results of experiments
involving human subjects in combination with video recordings will be
used in deep learning training procedures aiming at the development of
computational models.
