Web Interface for Interactive Face Reconstruction

Dataset image

Description: Existing systems for mental face reconstruction such as CG-GAN ([1]) require programming knowledge to set up the necessary environment and are therefore impossible to use for non-expert humans. Additionally, these systems are not designed to easily add new functionalities developed as research in this field grows. Therefore, the goal of this thesis is to re-implement this system as a website with a Python backend where the models are running. All the actions users perform on the website should be saved into an SQL database. Additionally, we will extend the functionality from previous work, and conduct a user study to evaluate different design choices of the website and optimise them for usability.

Supervisor: Florian Strohm

Distribution: 70% Implementation, 30% User study and evaluation

Requirements: Good HTML and JavaScript knowledge, ideally experience with Python web frameworks and SQL databases
