Evaluating other individuals with respect to personality characteristics plays a crucial role in human  relations and it is the focus of attention for research in diverse fields such as psychology and interactive computer systems. In a collaboration work with A.Todorov (Department of Psychology, Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey, USA) we experimentally tested whether the automatic prediction of facial trait judgments (e.g. dominance) can be made by using the full appearance information of the face and whether a reduced representation of its structure is sufficient. This work has been recently accepted for publication in Plos ONE (available in a few days). Congratulations Mario!
