Abstract: This paper proposes a lightweight deep model to recognize age and gender from a face image. Though simple, our network architecture is able to complete the two tasks effectively and efficiently. Moreover, different from existing methods, we simultaneously perform the age and gender recognition tasks via a joint regression model. Specifically, our model employs a multi-task learning scheme to learn shared features for these two correlated tasks in an end-to-end manner. Extensive experimental results on the recent Adience benchmark demonstrate that our model achieves competitive recognition accuracy with the state-of-the-art methods but with much faster speed, i.e., about 10 times faster in the testing phase. Our model can be easily adopted and extended to other facial applications.
