Human identification based on facial traits has made remarkable progress thanks to deep learning-based methods, but there are still challenges, for example related to the effects of occlusions, retrieval from large databases, and multi-modal representations. The recent pandemic has reminded how face recognition systems are deeply affected by facial occlusions due to large sections of the population wearing masks (Randhawa et al., 2022). Retrieving face images from large datasets instead requires learning representations that are compact and balanced to maximize performance (Pidhorskyi et al., 2018)]. The use of multiple modalities, like appearance and depth, instead requires reaching a balance between acquisition cost and capture time even in uncontrolled conditions (Piccirilli et al., 2016).
