A Face-Detection Library in 200 Lines of JavaScript

The pico.js library is a JavaScript implementation of the method described in 2013 by Markuš et al. in a technical report. The reference implementation is written in C and available on GitHub: https://github.com/nenadmarkus/pico. We follow this implementaion closely as we do not intend to replicate the learning process, just the runtime. The reasoning behind this is that we are better off by learning a detector with the official code, load it into JavaScript and do the runtime processing there as this offers some unique advantages (such as great portability across various operating systems and devices).
