Remember these photos from earlier this week?
Readers were intrigued with the idea that we can tell which photo is a face, despite the fact that the photos are just 12 by 14 pixels! That brings the question: can we identify faces with even *less* information? This week’s study may help answer that question. You’ll be presented with eight images of different resolutions. Some will be faces, and some won’t be. Can you tell the difference?
As usual, the study is brief, with just 8 quick questions, so it should only take a minute of your time. You have until 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on Wednesday, February 28 to participate — or until we have 333 responses, whichever comes first. Then don’t forget to come back next Friday for our analysis of the results!
