The paper explains that facial recognition is a three component process, including first order relational information (recognition), second order relational information (identification), and practice trials (classification). The paper specifically reviews an article that addresses these three components in its discussion of machines' abilities to learn facial attractiveness patterns. The paper concludes that the field of facial recognition is still imperfect and controversial, although it has a lot of potential.

From the Paper:

"Recognizing attractiveness in humans depends on facial symmetry and certain pinpoints subconsciously that computers are capable of learning. These facial recognition systems depend on the binary codes that they transfer to 1's and 0's in computational models.
The computer systems rely on hidden marks or models that Eisenthal, Dror, and Ruppin (2005) which state "... algorithm mimics, in an oversimplified manner, the way humans (consciously or unconsciously) select features they find the most attractive" (p. 122).
"Recognition is critical to facial recognition, as it is so stated in the term. This process observes object details and then distinguishes the object from the background scenery information(Robinson-Reigler & Robinson-Reigler, 2010). An example is the human face and other simplistic basic information separated from other background scenery objects."
