讲座简介 The main objective of our research is to explore the potential ofsupervised machine learning in face-induced social cognition, ridingon the momentum of much heralded successes of face processing,analysis and recognition on the tasks of biometric-basedidentification. We present a case study of automated statisticalinference on sociopsychological perceptions of female faces controlledfor race, attractiveness, age and nationality. Our empiricalevidences point to the possibility of training machine learningalgorithms, using annotated face images in the Internet, to predictthe first impression of a non-acquaintance in terms of personalitytraits and demeanors. In addition, we also developed new techniquesfor generating realistic face images of given sociopsychological perceptions.
