It looks like I will be working on three projects this summer:
1) Investigating genetic and cognitive trends in families with prosopagnosia.
2) Developing new measures of how people determine age and gender based on facial information.
3) Collecting data for a study on machine learning of facial recognition.
I don’t know much about machine learning so I’ll be spending the next few days reading up on neural networks. It’s really great being in a place where reading journal articles qualifies as work! (More evidence I should just go to graduate school.)
