This example program shows how to use dlib's implementation of the paper:
One Millisecond Face Alignment with an Ensemble of Regression Trees by
Vahid Kazemi and Josephine Sullivan, CVPR 2014
In particular, we will train a face landmarking model based on a small dataset
and then evaluate it. If you want to visualize the output of the trained
model on some images then you can run the face_landmark_detection_ex.cpp
example program with sp.dat as the input model.
It should also be noted that this kind of model, while often used for face
landmarking, is quite general and can be used for a variety of shape
prediction tasks. But here we demonstrate it only on a simple face
landmarking task.

// The faces directory contains a training dataset and a separate

// annotated with rectangles that bound each human face along with 68
// face landmarks on each face. The idea is to use this training data
// to learn to identify the position of landmarks on human faces in new
// images.
//
// Once you have trained a shape_predictor it is always important to
// test it on data it wasn't trained on. Therefore, we will also load
// a separate testing set of 5 images. Once we have a shape_predictor
// created from the training data we will see how well it works by
// running it on the testing images.
//
// So here we create the variables that will hold our dataset.
// images_train will hold the 4 training images and faces_train holds
// the locations and poses of each face in the training images. So for
// example, the image images_train[0] has the faces given by the
// full_object_detections in faces_train[0].

// dataset and also contain the positions of the face boxes and
// landmarks (called parts in the XML file). Obviously you can use any
// kind of input format you like so long as you store the data into
// images_train and faces_train. But for convenience dlib comes with
// tools for creating and loading XML image dataset files. Here you see
// how to load the data. To create the XML files you can use the imglab
// tool which can be found in the tools/imglab folder. It is a simple
// graphical tool for labeling objects in images. To see how to use it
// read the tools/imglab/README.txt file.

// You should also read Kazemi's paper which explains all the parameters
// in great detail. However, here I'm just setting three of them
// differently than their default values. I'm doing this because we
// have a very small dataset. In particular, setting the oversampling
// to a high amount (300) effectively boosts the training set size, so
// that helps this example.

// the regularization (making nu smaller) and by using trees with

// shape_predictor and where it should be according to the truth data.
// Note that there is an optional 4th argument that lets us rescale the
// distances. Here we are causing the output to scale each face's
// distances by the interocular distance, as is customary when
// evaluating face landmarking systems.
