Geometry-Aware Eye Image-To-Image Translation

ACM Symposium on Eye Tracking Research & Applications (ETRA)


Recently, image-to-image translation (I2I) has met with great success in computer vision, but few works have paid attention to the geometric changes that occur during translation. The geometric changes are necessary to reduce the geometric gap between domains at the cost of breaking correspondence between translated images and original ground truth. We propose a novel geometry-aware semi-supervised method to preserve this correspondence while still allowing geometric changes. The proposed method takes a synthetic image-mask pair as input and produces a corresponding real pair. We also utilize an objective function to ensure consistent geometric movement of the image and mask through the translation. Extensive experiments illustrate that our method yields a 11.23% higher mean Intersection-Over-Union than the current methods on the downstream eye segmentation task. The generated image has a 15.9% decrease in Frechet Inception Distance indicating higher image quality.
