University of Greenwich new research: Face recognition accuracy with and without face masks

Professor Josh P Davis (University of Greenwich)

We regularly create new face recognition tests as we can only use them once with super-recognisers (if we use them a second time, super-recognisers remember the photos seen previously).

We are planning new research examining the impact of face masks on face recognition accuracy. We would very much appreciate your help by taking a few selfies of yourself with and without face masks, and supplying some other social-media type photos too as comparison images. The minimum requirement for participation is 8 images.

We will enter all participants who submit at least 8 images into a weekly draw for a £20 Amazon voucher.

Please click here to participate.

The project has ethical approval and although someone who knows you will recognise your photos, the aim is that the test will be used by people entirely unfamiliar to you, so your identity should remain anonymous. You have the right to request deletion of your data at any point.

Thank you for your support.

Josh Davis
