Can computers see and recognize objects as we do in real life? Well, not yet. The process of object recognition that happens in a human brain is still not clear for researchers. It is known that it takes a human brain 100 milliseconds to recognize some objects, very fast.
What about face recognition?
When a person recognizes an object: car brand or tree type, he uses only 20-30% of brain capabilities. When a person recognizes another person this figure rises to 70%.
Although each face is unique it is very difficult even for us to recognize our relatives or friends that we have not seen for some time. Or remember the situation when parents argue whom resembles their newly born child.
Face recognition and comparison that we do in our brain is very subjective.
How do computer programs carry out face recognition and comparison of faces?
A computer can’t be subjective when speaking about objects recognition. The software only measures proportions of the face on the incoming image and compares it with proportions of the faces in the database. So the computer compares figures to figures and that’s it.
That is how our applications work. We find your celebrity look alikes using mathematical algorithms that count the propotion of your face and compares it with our celebrity database.
That’s why it may happen that you may look like a korean type girl or an afro-american. The software doesn’t recognize skin colour. It compares figures.
We understand that face recognition carried out by computers is way to go to the level of recognition that we do in our brain.
