MIT’s machine learning system helps understand how humans recognise faces

How do humans recognise face from any given angle? That’s a puzzle that scientists at MIT have been trying to solve and as a step towards that ultimate goal have developed a new machine learning system that effectively shows what could be going on inside our brains when facial recognition is being carried out. The work is being dubbed as a study of social intelligence which is an important part of human intelligence by Tomaso Poggio, a professor of brain and cognitive sciences at MIT and director of the Center for Brains, Minds, and Machines (CBMM). The paper published in Current Biology described a theory that explains how our visual system learns to compute invariant descriptions of an object and applies to the case of faces where scientists have been…
