Summary and Info
A common question to many researchers is whether a computer vision system can process and analyze 3D face as the human vision system does. In addition to understanding human cognition, there is also increasing interest in analyzing shapes of facial surfaces for developing applications such as biometrics, human–computer interaction (HCI), facial surgery, video communications, and 3D animation.
