Abstract :

Multiple images and face averages is not beneficial in a real-world live face matching context. In testing 1,999 participants using four-image arrays and face averages in two separate live matching tasks, matching a single image to a live person led to many errors (79.9% accuracy across experiments). Neither multiple images (82.4% accuracy) nor face averages (76.9% accuracy) improved performance.
