“The team is called the super-recognizers, and each member has taken a battery of tests, administered by scientists, to establish this uncanny credential. Glancing at a pixelated face in a low-resolution screen grab, super-recognizers can identify a crook with whom they had a chance encounter years earlier, or whom they recognize from a mug shot.” The New Yorker’s Patrick Radden Keefe on the detectives who never forget a face. (I’d like to bring these guys with me to social events.)
