We have presented a precise model of a face, based on the latest knowledge of face asymmetry, ophthalmogeometry, brain hemispheres functioning asymmetry phenomena, and, in a sense, suited to the specification of the problem of the creation of modern and prospect person’s authentication/identification information techniques in live biometrics and/or human-computer interaction, identification of cognition-psyche type of personality in human resource management, education, and so on.

The result of the creation and new ideas of development are presented: 1) a procedure of 2D normalization of a single 2D frontal view of a face image using a unit called the Muld, 2) an algorithm of person’s ophthahnologic pattern visualization, 3) an algorithm of the synthesis of special pictures (composites) for face asymmetry characteristics evaluation, 4) a criterion and algorithm of precise mapping and evaluating the pseudo-informational similarity of compared objects in a holistic manner, 5) some theses concerning the cognition-psyche and interdisciplinary interpretation of gained information parameters. The above mentioned type of a face representation has been called Czestochowa’s face. The model is aimed at being used in different modern areas: human-computer interactions, person live biometric authentication/ identification, person cognition-psyche type identification for human resource management and education, smart environment design, and other similar cutting-edge information technology applications.
