Is there any other algorithms for face detection other than viola jones , or viola jones are the best algorithm out of every algorithm regarding face detection ? Because as far i am studying about it , i studied that viola jones need straight front face to detect the image but what if some one has a bit different angle towards camera ? or different lighting condition ? or if someone changes his/her hairstyle ? wear glasses of different shapes, So which algorithm is better in the scenario where we face such things. Thank you

See for example PICO

N. Markus, M. Frljak, I. S. Pandzic, J. Ahlberg and R. Forchheimer, "Object Detection with Pixel Intensity Comparisons Organized in Decision Trees",

Also, you can see here ( a face detection data set and benchmarks. Based on the ROC curves, best two algorithms seem to be (if I'm not wrong):

(both based on deep learning)

Thank you for your reply, I am trying this algorithm sample as well, but its not working on its output path when i give it to 'D:\' . Can you please just guide me on it
