Pattern recognition in bees: new research
Bees recognise human faces
The pattern recognition skills of bees are well-known, thought to have evolved to enable them to discriminate between different types of flowers.

Now a new study shows that these capabilities are so powerful that bees can recognize human faces better than some humans and with one-ten thousandth of the brain cells. The results may help lead to better face-recognition software. To read boingboing synopsis.
