5) Related developments.
We have been approached by Google to develop an online tool that allows researches to extract the populations statistics of any well-defined measurement on the human head. This led to us being awarded a Google Faculty Award for a project entitled Headspace Online. The proposed PhD project will directly relate to this work, as population statistics can be gathered automatically by automatic statistical model fitting.
6) Capability to supervise the project.
There is a range of expertise in CS that relates to 3D Computer Vision and Machine Learning within Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition Group, Artificial Intelligence Group and Advanced Computer Architectures Group. There is a strong record of publications in 3D face analysis; for example, see the web pages of Nick Pears https://www-users.cs.york.ac.uk/nep/ and Will Smith https://www-users.cs.york.ac.uk/wsmith/, who currently collaborate in this area.
