Making faces

Free learning from The Open University www.open.ac.uk — Open University cognitive psychologist Graham Pike contributed to the development of EFIT-V, a tool now being used in the process of identifying police suspects. It is being developed to allow law enforcement agencies to produce images of criminal suspects at very short notice at crime scenes. — For more information about identifying faces on OpenLearn visit www.open.ac.uk Research links: Victims and witnesses www.open.ac.uk Articles by Graham Pike on OpenLearn www.open.ac.uk Graham Pike’s OU profile www.open.ac.uk Further reading: Making faces with computers oro.open.ac.uk Improving suspect identification oro.open.ac.uk Visual identification of suspects oro.open.ac.uk Designing identification systems oro.open.ac.uk Helping children to identify suspects oro.open.ac.uk Celebrity facial composites oro.open.ac.uk Related sites: EFIT-V system www.visionmetric.com —

    @thedancinggymnast there should be more options to resize the bridge of the nose, the gap between the eyes, the height of the eyebrows, the shape of the eyebrows, the thickness of the eyebrows, the shape of the face!, the shape of the bottom and top lips. I found perfect eyes for 2 people but when I put it on the entire face it looks nothing like them because of these limitations.

    the programme at 1:29 is far better than the photofit one. I had a go but it has so many pointless limitations. Like altering the size. The scale should be much larger. I found a perfect nose, but it wont go to a small enough size. The first couple of mouths, noses and eyes are smallest but some further down are better shapes but won’t go small enough. Plus when I try to resize them it resizes the whole thing.

    Are there plans to continue this research to help individuals with autism to develop social skills?

    Humans don’t recognise faces by looking at individual features. Unless you’re me, or have prosopagnosia. :)

    The tic-tac-toe looking interface at 1.26 seem to suggest that it works on a similar basis as Richard Dawkin’s “Blind Watchmaker” program.
