Secrets of the human face

Forget about your phone for a few minutes and take a look at the most successful and important
communications gadget you will ever own: your face. It is easy to overlook just how complex
and sophisticated our faces are, simply because we spend so much of our time looking out from
them, but think what the face is capable of: showing the whole range of our emotions, yet often
also hiding our feelings the list is long.
All human faces are basically the same, with the same set of features, but they send out an
incredible number of different signals to others. In addition to communications, the face is
where you see, hear, breathe and speak. Because all faces are so alike, the brain needs to be very
well organised to notice the often minor differences between other peoples faces especially
between family members who may well be almost identical minute by minute.
Research suggests that it only takes a newborn baby a few days to be able to identify faces that
are important to their lives. There appears to be an instinct to notice faces and to pay attention
to their features and appearance. But doesnt the ability to identify and to store in our memories
the faces of our closest relatives then mean that we as adults will become skilled at face
recognition where strangers are involved? In fact the opposite is true. We are often little better line 15
than babies in that respect.
A key area where face recognition lets us and others down, sometimes with very serious
consequences, is as eyewitnesses to crimes where we are asked after days, or even weeks, to
identify a face, one we may have seen for a few moments in a highly stressed situation. In these
situations, it is becoming clear that people have over the years made huge numbers of mistakes,
and punished innocent individuals primarily because people struggle to recognise the faces of
unfamiliar people. Is technology a better option?
The movie industry has created many myths about the ability of cameras to recognise people. In
fact, finding and identifying one face amongst many is hard. With current technology, the face
must be at a good angle, as well as not covered by anything, but in real life cameras are often
placed at heights where the only thing visible is the top of a head. In the right circumstances,
current technology can indeed identify almost anybody if they are on the database, but, just as
fingerprint experts wont find anything if someone wears gloves, face recognition is hopeless if
the subject is looking away.
Although we tend not to think that much about them, mainly because they are all around us,
faces attract us, whether they are familiar or not. From birth, were attracted to faces because
we learn that they send out many important social signals and give us vital information. They let
you know whether another person is listening to you or being friendly towards you, and they
sometimes tell you if the other person is someone youve already met, in order to spare either of
you any embarrassment.
