Abstract
The automatic construction of Active Appearance Models (AAMs) is usually posed as finding the location of the base mesh vertices in the input training images. In this paper, we re-pose the problem as an energy-minimizing image coding problem and propose an efficient gradient-descent algorithm to solve it.

Keywords
