CNET, a well-known technology website, recently published an article about the collaboration between “super recognizer” and face recognition systems. Super Recognizers are humans with special talents who can identify a large number of faces. It is a cognitive quirk discovered by Harvard University and the University of London in 2009. These people are known to have only 2% of the total population.
Super Recognizer will also be used in police investigations (such as the City of London police), but because police investigations often have to check a large number of closed-circuit television or other face data, it is too slow to identify them by hand alone! Therefore, local police will also use the face recognition system, but because the system is still in the testing stage, and there will be errors, if Super Recognizer can work with the computer, it will be seamless and the efficiency of the crime will be greatly improved.
