  • Psychological research indicates that humans recognize faces of their own race more accurately than faces of other races. [...] Key Result Humans showed the standard other-race effect for these faces, but showed more stable performance than the algorithms over changes in the race of the test faces. State-of-the-art face recognition algorithms, like humans, struggle with “other-race face” recognition.Expand Abstract
