Trombinos: face recognition tool by INA
by Thomas Petit, INA
Trombinos is a face database management system. It allows the user to navigate, cure and expand efficiently a large-scale dataset of faces, thanks to its integrated face recognition model. The database contains both face images coming from archived french TV shows, as well as face images obtained through image search engines. It already contains 62 million identified faces belonging to 70 thousand individuals, as well as 540 millions faces yet to be identified. Trombinos helps users to efficiently navigate this database, to recognize someone based on a picture, to retrieve their occurrences amongst the archived TV shows based on their name, and to manually enrich or correct the existing annotations. Our system facilitates human-machine interaction: by identifying similar looking faces, Trombinos allows the users to validate them by batch and hence to annotate a large number of faces easily. Furthermore, Trombinos learns from the users feedback to improve its face recognition performances in real time, and in turn to facilitate the future annotations of the user in a virtuous circle. Using Trombinos, a single user can easily assign hundreds of thousands of faces to their correct identities in just a few minutes.
