Abstract: In this paper we study the energy saving potential of smart scale selection methods when using the Viola and Jones face detector running on smartphone devices. Our motivation is that cloud and edge-cloud multi-user environments may provide enough contextual information to create this type of scale selection algorithms. Given their non-trivial design, we must first inspect its actual benefits, before committing important research resources to actually produce relevant smart scale selection methods. Our experimental methodology in this paper assumes the optimum scenario of a perfect selection of scales for each image (drawn from ground truth annotation, using well-known public datasets), comparing it with the typical multi-scale geometrical progression approach of the Viola Jones algorithm, measuring both classification precision and recall, as well as algorithmic execution time and battery consumption on Android smartphone devices. Results show that if we manage to approximate this per fect scale selection, we obtain very significant energy savings, motivating a strong research investment on this topic. (More)
