Studies have shown that facial width-to-height ratio fWHR is associated with testosterone-related behaviors, which some researchers have linked with aggression. But psychological scientist Eric Hehman of Dartmouth College and colleagues at the University of Delaware speculated that these behaviors may have more to do with social dominance than outright aggression. The researchers decided to examine the relationship between fWHR and dominance in the specific context of racial prejudice.

The technological frontiers being explored by questionable researchers and unscrupulous start-ups recall the discredited pseudosciences of physiognomy and phrenology, which purport to use facial structure and head shape to assess character and mental capacity. More broadly, new applications of facial recognition — not just in academic research, but also in commercial products that try to guess emotions from facial expressions — echo the same biological essentialism behind physiognomy. One of the pioneers of 19th-century facial analysis, Francis Galton, was a prominent British eugenicist.
The cross-race effect sometimes called cross-race biasother-race bias or own-race bias is the tendency to more easily recognize faces of the race that one is most familiar with which is most often one's own race.

Due to the increase in the media attention, people have grown more aware that implicit bias occurring in people can affect the AI systems we build. Last week I wrote a blog post on learning facial recognition through OpenFace where I went into deeper detail about both facial recognition and the OpenFace architecture, so if you want to give that a read through before checking out this talk, I highly encourage it. Implicit bias can affect way we behave: This infographic refers to a field study done by Bertrand and Mullainathan showing the likelihood of getting through the hiring pipeline based on the whiteness of your name.
However the more attractive a face is, regardless of ethnicity, the less the variations from the mask seem to occur. That is, in the attractive face from any ethnic group the correlation with the mask is extremely high. It is somewhat artificial to put people into categories, since even people placed in the same category can have significant variations. This is the case with human attractiveness and geographic races ethnic groups.
