Edinburgh Psychology Keynote Talk

Speaker: Peter Hancock (University of Stirling)

Title: Comparing human and computer 'perception' of faces

Abstract: Computer face recognition now comfortably out-performs typical humans at matching unfamiliar faces. Do computers do the same thing, just better, or are they working in some fundamentally different ways? I shall present data from various face matching experiments to explore what sort of things trouble humans and computers, whether we find the same things difficult.
