Computers outperform humans at Face Recognition

Comments Off on Computers outperform humans at Face Recognition

Sample 3D ModelThe recently released results of the Face Recognition Grand Challenge now show that computers are capable at outperforming humans in face recognition tasks. The recent match up of face-recognition algorithms showed that machine recognition of human individuals has improved tenfold since 2002 and a hundredfold since 1995. Indeed, the best face-recognition algorithms now perform more accurately than most humans can manage. Overall, facial-recognition technology is advancing rapidly.

Check out Mark Williams’s article for the Technology Review for a rundown of some of the entries for the grand challenge. This story was also recently covered on slashdot.
