Abstract
Understanding the human performance factors that medi-
ate successful person identificationcan be helpful in the de-
velopment of automatic face recognition algorithms. Face
familiarity and facial motion are two factors that seem es-
pecially useful when subjects make recognition decisions
from challenging viewing formats. We tested the effects of
these two factors on person recognition from naturalistic,
surveillance-like video. Subjects learned faces from either
static photographs or facial speech videos and were asked
to recognize people from whole body gait videos. We found
that the more experience participants had with a face dur-
ing learning (i.e., 1-view, 2-view, and 4-view conditions),
the better their recognition performance for people in the
whole body video gait clips. Thus, familiarizing subjects
