Up to 80 times faster with fewer resources

Comparison Results of Face Detectors

For comparison, three cutting-edge Face detectors were put up against the Xailient Face detector model. They are:

  • OpenCV Haar Cascade
  • Dlib
  • MTCNN

Here’s the video of the comparative results of the four Face Detectors.

Summary of Face Detector Results

Here’s how they compared in descending order of performance (best is at the top of the list):

  1. Xailient Face Detector
  2. OpenCV Haar Cascade Face Detector
  3. Dlib Face Detector
  4. MTCNN Face Detector

Xailient ran 16 times faster than OpenCV Haar Cascade Face detector using only 1/4 of the resources with better qualitative accuracy.

Xailient ran 80 times faster than Dlib Face detector using the same amount of resources with similar qualitative accuracy.

Xailient ran 80 times faster than MTCNN Face detector using only 1/4 of the resources with similar qualitative accuracy.
