ChaLearn Looking at People workshop: Workshop and Competition proposal on Fair Face Recognition and Analysis, ECCV 2020, Glasgow.The accuracy of state-of-the-art face verification systems has surpassed the ability of humans to recognise other humans and it is improving every year. However, datasets used for training and testing are often imbalanced and there have been numerous reports that the accuracy of trained models is significantly worse for people with gender and/or skin tones that are underrepresented in the data, hence rendering them biased. The main objective of this workshop and its associated challenge is to advance into fairness in terms of bias mitigation in biometric/looking-at-people systems. To that end we propose an event to compile the latests efforts in the field and run a fair face verification challenge with a new large set of data and new fairness-aware evaluation metrics.
