Age and Gender Estimation

This is a Keras implementation of a CNN for estimating age and gender from a face image [1, 2]. In training, the IMDB-WIKI dataset is used.

Dependencies

  • Python2.7+
  • Keras2.0+
  • scipy, numpy, Pandas, tqdm, tables, h5py
  • OpenCV3

Tested on:

  • Ubuntu 16.04, Python 3.5.2, Keras 2.0.3, Tensorflow(-gpu) 1.0.1, CUDA 8.0, cuDNN 5.0
    • CPU: i7-7700 3.60GHz, GPU: GeForce GTX1080

Usage

Face detect

''' here use opencv-face-detection. or you can use the mtcnn-caffemodel,

I have packaged the mtcnn face model into a class, the link is here. '''

Use pretrained model

Download pretrained model weights for TensorFlow backend:

The age, gender and emotion pretrained models locate in the directory PRJ_ROOT/trained_models/

Run demo script (requires web cam)

python test.py

Train a model using the IMDB-WIKI dataset

Download the dataset

The dataset is downloaded and extracted to the data directory.

./download.sh

Create training data

Filter out noise data and serialize images and labels for training into .mat file. Please check check_dataset.ipynb for the details of the dataset.

python create_db.py --output data/imdb_db.mat --db imdb --img_size 64
usage: create_db.py [-h] --output OUTPUT [--db DB] [--img_size IMG_SIZE] [--min_score MIN_SCORE]

This script cleans-up noisy labels and creates database for training.

optional arguments:
  -h, --help                 show this help message and exit
  --output OUTPUT, -o OUTPUT path to output database mat file (default: None)
  --db DB                    dataset; wiki or imdb (default: wiki)
  --img_size IMG_SIZE        output image size (default: 32)
  --min_score MIN_SCORE      minimum face_score (default: 1.0)

Train network

Train the network using the training data created above.

python train.py --input data/imdb_db.mat

Trained weight files are stored as checkpoints/weights.*.hdf5 for each epoch if the validation loss becomes minimum over previous epochs.

usage: train.py [-h] --input INPUT [--batch_size BATCH_SIZE]
                [--nb_epochs NB_EPOCHS] [--depth DEPTH] [--width WIDTH]
                [--validation_split VALIDATION_SPLIT]

This script trains the CNN model for age and gender estimation.

optional arguments:
  -h, --help                          show this help message and exit
  --input INPUT, -i INPUT             path to input database mat file (default: None)
  --batch_size BATCH_SIZE             batch size (default: 32)
  --nb_epochs NB_EPOCHS               number of epochs (default: 30)
  --depth DEPTH                       depth of network (should be 10, 16, 22, 28, ...) (default: 16)
  --width WIDTH                       width of network (default: 8)
  --validation_split VALIDATION_SPLIT validation split ratio (default: 0.1)

Use the trained network

python demo.py
usage: demo.py [-h] [--weight_file WEIGHT_FILE] [--depth DEPTH] [--width WIDTH]

This script detects faces from web cam input, and estimates age and gender for
the detected faces.

optional arguments:
  -h, --help                show this help message and exit
  --weight_file WEIGHT_FILE path to weight file (e.g. weights.18-4.06.hdf5) (default: None)
  --depth DEPTH             depth of network (default: 16)
  --width WIDTH             width of network (default: 8)

Please use the best model among checkpoints/weights.*.hdf5 for WEIGHT_FILE if you use your own trained models.

Plot training curves from history file

python plot_history.py --input models/history_16_8.h5 

Network architecture

In the original paper [1, 2], the pretrained VGG network is adopted. Here the Wide Residual Network (WideResNet) is trained from scratch. I modified the @asmith26's implementation of the WideResNet; two classification layers (for age and gender estimation) are added on the top of the WideResNet.

Note that while age and gender are independently estimated by different two CNNs in [1, 2], in my implementation, they are simultaneously estimated using a single CNN.

Results

Trained on imdb, tested on wiki.
