ABAW: Valence-Arousal Estimation, Expression Recognition, Action Unit Detection & Multi-Task Learning Challenges
This paper describes the third Affective Behavior Analysis in-the-wild (ABAW) Competition, held in conjunction with IEEE International Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR), 2022. The 3rd ABAW Competition is a continuation of the Competitions held at ICCV 2021, IEEE FG 2020 and IEEE CVPR 2017 Conferences, and aims at automatically analyzing affect. This year the Competition encompasses four Challenges: i) uni-task Valence-Arousal Estimation, ii) uni-task Expression Classification, iii) uni-task Action Unit Detection, and iv) Multi-Task-Learning. All the Challenges are based on a common benchmark database, Aff-Wild2, which is a large scale in-the-wild database and the first one to be annotated in terms of valence-arousal, expressions and action units. In this paper, we present the four Challenges, with the utilized Competition corpora, we outline the evaluation metrics and present both the baseline systems and the top performing teams' per Challenge. Finally we illustrate the obtained results of the baseline systems and of all participating teams. More information regarding the Competition and the leaderboard for each Challenge can be found in the competition's website: http://ibug.doc.ic.ac.uk/resources/cvpr-2022-3rd-abaw.
