    This example shows how to run a CNN based face detector using dlib.  The
    example loads a pretrained model and uses it to find faces in images.  The
    CNN model is much more accurate than the HOG based model shown in the
    face_detection_ex.cpp example, but takes much more computational power to
    run, and is meant to be executed on a GPU to attain reasonable speed.  For
    example, on a NVIDIA Titan X GPU, this example program processes images at
    about the same speed as face_detection_ex.cpp.

    Also, users who are just learning about dlib's deep learning API should read
    the dnn_introduction_ex.cpp and dnn_introduction2_ex.cpp examples to learn
    how the API works.  For an introduction to the object detection method you
    should read dnn_mmod_ex.cpp

        Finally, users interested in how the face detector was trained should
        read the dnn_mmod_ex.cpp example program.  It should be noted that the
        face detector used in this example uses a bigger training dataset and
        larger CNN architecture than what is shown in dnn_mmod_ex.cpp, but
        otherwise training is the same.  If you compare the net_type statements
        in this file and dnn_mmod_ex.cpp you will see that they are very similar
        except that the number of parameters has been increased.

        Additionally, the following training parameters were different during
        training: The following lines in dnn_mmod_ex.cpp were changed from
            mmod_options options(face_boxes_train, 40,40);
        to the following when training the model used in this example:
            mmod_options options(face_boxes_train, 80,80);

        Also, the random_cropper was left at its default settings,  So we didn't
        call these functions:
            cropper.set_chip_dims(200, 200);

        The training data used to create the model is also available at
