I've learned some nugget today regarding face perception. These are some hacks to exploit humans' capability to recognize faces.
• Robohash is a cool web service to generate unique robot image from any text. The robots look funny. But it is actually created for an excellent application to help quickly identify a caller from a large pool. The source code is available in github.
• The project is inspired by Identicon. It has similar idea but uses geometric shapes to generate icons.
• Chernoff faces, a visualization technique invented by Herman Chernoff, display multivariate data in the shape of a human face.
