The Face Game

  1. Jun 19, 2008 #1
    Hello everyone :)

    There is an alien that just came to earth and is having trouble recognizing peoples faces. We also have trouble recognizing his face; where his eye is on one hand and a mouth on the other. Luckily for us the alien understands our language and simple colours.

    The task is to teach the alien how to recognize human faces. Post a process/description using pictures and any learning material for an alien might do to recognize human faces; the second person gives an example where the process/description is flawed and inputs his new description adding/subtracting and etc.

    The winner is the person who posts a process/description that no one can find a flaw :).

    user 1;
    Human faces have 2 eyes
    user 2:
    some humans lost an eye

    Lets start:

    1: find something that is generally one color
    2: Check that its resonably symetric
    3: check that there is atleast one eye

    public Alien()
    //start off:
    AreYouHuman(new RandomObject());

    public void AreYouHuman(object human)
    if(human is Human)
    if (!human == GetHumanFromDatabase(human))
    human = new RandomObject();
    WhatColor(human); //see below method
    if(this is Living)

    public Color WhatColor(object obj)
    if(! obj.Color == GetColorFromDataBase(obj.Color))
