THE HUMAN BRAIN, the students brain   -is hard wired to recognise faces. Babies learn to identify their parents' faces within hours of being born-

And even in old age people can remember what their childhood friends looked like.

But remembering faces is not the same thing as trying to describe them.
This is particular apparent when witnesses are asked by the police to create a composite picture of a suspect. 

Even when the result is thought to be a good likeness by the witness-

That does not mean that other people will also be able to to recognise the face and thus identify the suspect.

Indeed, even when working from a fresh memory, the composite pictures people produce are, on average, recognizable to others only 20% of the time. And this percentage dwindles further if the witness is working from a memory more than a few days old.

The problem is that face recognition is a holistic process; people are good at recognising faces as a whole, but struggle to identify or describe facial features, such as a person's eyes, nose or mouth.

But police forces in Britain and other countries are using a new technology   that solves this problem by changing the task from one of recall into one of recognition.

Charlie Frowd at the University of Central Lancashire, in Preston, and Peter Hancock at the University of Stirling, in Scotland, have spent much more than a decade refining their new approach, but it now appears to be paying dividends.

Instead of asking witnesses to select facial features their system, called EVOFIT, initially presents them with a grid of  18  randomly generated faces that match the race, gender and general shape of the suspect.

From these the witness is asked to select the two that most resemble the suspect, however vaguely.

The software then takes these two selections and  ''breeds'' them, treating the facial features of their selections like genes, mixing them together and making random changes, to produce 18 new offspring, which are displayed in a new grid.

As the process is repeated, with the witness again choosing the closest two matches, the faces generated quickly converge on one that bears a resemblance to that of the suspect.

But just how recognisable are those faces to others? Delightful question, and be assured I answer it in the next research presentation. So don't miss reading it. Meanwhile,............ 

INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY SPECIALIST at  Panama Papers  firm was just recently arrested in  Geneva-
And  charged  for  *stealing data*. The sub-headline lit many blackholes.

GENEVA : An  information technology  specialist at the  Geneva office of Mossack Fonseca,  the law firm at the center of the  Panama Papers  scandal has been arrested. Switzerland's  Le Temps  newspaper reported last Wednesday.

The paper, citing a source close to the case,  said the  IT  employee had been placed in provincial detention on suspicion of stealing a large haul of confidential documents.

The spokesman for the Geneva's prosecutor's office, Henri Della Casa, told AFP  that  '' a criminal case had been opened following a complaint by Mossack Fonseca''.

He declined to comment on whether an arrest had been made.

According to the paper, the unnamed employee is suspected of inappropriately accessing a database, stealing assets and abusing his position. 

Della Casa neither confirmed nor denied those details.

Le Temps said it had no information whether the arrested individual was the so called   ''John Doe''  who has claimed credit for the unprecedented leak in April of  11.5 Million  Mossack Fonseca documents.

*The documents revealed the  games of leaders, politicians, celebrities and wealthy individuals from the around the whole wide world who used the Panama  -based firm to create offshore entities to hide their assets.*

*Offshore companies are not in themselves illegal, but the sudden publication of troves of data drew attention to rampant tax avoidance and even money laundering crimes*.

Consequences from the leak continue to reverberate worldwide. With investigations under way in several countries.

The European parliament just a few weeks ago launched a far-reaching probe into potential tax-fraud in Europe that was sparked by the Panama Papers scandal.  

Last month,  Mossack Fonseca said it was filing a law suit against the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists  {ICJ}  which coordinated a global probe by multiple media outlets into the information contained in the Panama Papers.

The firm's Geneva office did not respond to queries from AFP seeking details of the criminal case in Switzerland.
