A View From Somewhere: Human-Centric Face Representations

Jerone Andrews · Przemyslaw Joniak · Alice Xiang


We propose to implicitly learn a set of continuous face-varying dimensions, without ever asking an annotator to explicitly categorize a person. We uncover the dimensions by learning on a novel dataset of 638,180 human judgments of face similarity (FAX). We demonstrate the utility of our learned embedding space for predicting face similarity judgments, collecting continuous face attribute values, and attribute classification. Moreover, using a novel conditional framework, we show that an annotator's demographics influences the importance they place on different attributes when judging similarity, underscoring the need for diverse annotator groups to avoid biases.
