Abstract: "With the rapid development of 3D imaging technology, the wide usage of 3D surface information for research and applications is becoming a convenient reality. This study is focused on a quantified analysis of facial asymmetry of more than 100 3D human faces (individuals). We investigate whether facial asymmetry differs statistically significantly from a bilateral symmetry assumption, and the role of global and local facial asymmetry for gender discrimination."
