Dartmouth Investigates Believability of CGI Faces

R&D Magazine (and severalother sources) are reporting on research by Olivia Holmes and Prof. Hany Farid of Dartmouth, in collaboration with Martin S. Banks from Berkeley, which investigates how convincing CGI faces have become, and whether human observers can still distinguish between real and virtual faces on screen. The full research paper was published in ACM Transactions on Applied Perception, and the findings may have wide-reaching consequences in legal cases prosecuting child pornography.
