How readers did on Upshot's facial recognition quiz, and what we can learn from their mistakes. https://t.co/MdyCjT1keR— The Upshot (@UpshotNYT) January 3, 2020
- Are you good at putting a name to a face? Depending on your age and media-intake, you might not be;
- NYT offered a quiz in which you had to put a name to 52 faces;
- "Even though most readers were able to correctly identify Beyoncé, for example, thousands thought she was Jennifer Lopez, Cardi B, Rihanna, Laverne Cox, Kim Kardashian or Ariana Grande."
- Jeffree Star was only guessed correctly for 10% of the replies, mostly confused with Marilyn Manson.
What's your score, ONTD?
