Style transfer of 3D faces has gained more and more attention. However, previous methods mainly use images of artistic faces for style transfer while ignoring arbitrary style images such as abstract paintings. To solve this problem, we propose a novel method, namely Face-guided Dual Style Transfer (FDST). To begin with, FDST employs a 3D decoupling module to separate facial geometry and texture. Then we propose a style fusion strategy for facial geometry. Subsequently, we design an optimization-based DDSG mechanism for textures that can guide the style transfer by two style images. Besides the normal style image input, DDSG can utilize the original face input as another style input as the face prior. By this means, high-quality face arbitrary style transfer results can be obtained. Furthermore, FDST can be applied in many downstream tasks, including region-controllable style transfer, high-fidelity face texture reconstruction, large-pose face reconstruction, and artistic face reconstruction. Comprehensive quantitative and qualitative results show that our method can achieve comparable performance. All source codes and pre-trained weights will be released to the public.
Emotion recognition based on EEG (electroencephalography) has been widely used in human-computer interaction, distance education and health care. However, the conventional methods ignore the adjacent and symmetrical characteristics of EEG signals, which also contain salient information related to emotion. In this paper, we present a spatial folding ensemble network (SFENet) for EEG feature extraction and emotion recognition. Firstly, for the undetected area between EEG electrodes, we employ an improved Bicubic-EEG interpolation algorithm for EEG channel information completion, which allows us to extract a wider range of adjacent space features. Then, motivated by the spatial symmetry mechanism of human brain, we fold the input EEG channel data with five different symmetrical strategies: the left-right folds, the right-left folds, the top-bottom folds, the bottom-top folds, and the entire double-sided brain folding, which enable the proposed network to extract the information of space features of EEG signals more effectively. Finally, 3DCNN based spatial and temporal extraction and multi voting strategy of ensemble Learning are employed to model a new neural network. With this network, the spatial features of different symmetric folding signlas can be extracted simultaneously, which greatly improves the robustness and accuracy of feature recognition. The experimental results on DEAP and SEED data sets show that the proposed algorithm has comparable performance in term of recognition accuracy.
