This paper presents comparison results for the proposed face detection algorithm based on a compact convolutional neural network cascade and modern frontal face detectors. Test results for 16 frontal view face detectors on two public benchmarks datasets are shown. A comparative assessment of the performance of face detection algorithms is made.
