Improbable Research on “Science Friday” today: Faces

I’m going to be on NPR’s Science Friday program again today, discussing Chernoff faces.

This will be in Hour 2 of the program, in the final ten minutes. Listen on an NPR station, or online.

Here’s Herman Chernoff‘s original study [with a link to a PDF of the entire thing]:

The Use of Faces to Represent Points in K-Dimensional Space Graphically,” Herman Chernoff, Journal of the American Statistical Association, vol. 68, no. 342, 1973, pp. 361–8.

BONUS: Here’s a recording and transcript of the segment.
