What's the talk about?

How good are humans at recognizing faces? It is often assumed that we are pretty good at it. After all, we can recognize the faces of our friends and family with ease. However, matching faces of people we don’t know is much more difficult, yet this is the task most commonly faced by police and passport officers. In this talk we will ask, how good are humans at recognizing faces? And, are machines any better?
