More human than human: a Turing test for photographed faces

OPEN Cognitive research: principles and implications | 22 Nov 2019

JG Sanders, Y Ueda, S Yoshikawa and R Jenkins
Abstract
Recent experimental work has shown that hyper-realistic face masks can pass for real faces during live viewing. However, live viewing embeds the perceptual task (mask detection) in a powerful social context that may influence respondents' behaviour. To remove this social context, we assessed viewers' ability to distinguish photos of hyper-realistic masks from photos of real faces in a computerised two-alternative forced choice (2AFC) procedure.
