Abstract

Recent investigations into the effect of age on face identification concluded that it was more difficult to identify younger people than older ones. The identification rates of the different age groups were, however, not measured under identical conditions. There was a significantly higher percentage of younger people in all the face image samples. We found that a person from any age group will find that they look more similar to another person from the same age group, as opposed to someone from another age group. The experiments we carried out using samples that have an evenly distributed age range did not show a statistically significant difference between the sample age groups.
