I’m trying facial recognition with Google’s Picasa Web, and it’s pretty good. It’s having a field day with my wedding photos from December. There are pictures of me, for instance, with a thick hat in Utah and wearing glasses where it matched everything perfectly.
One of the few people it’s having a lot of trouble with is my dad. Picasa’s convinced my dad’s Indian. Every few attempts, it keeps trying to match my dad with random people – never the same one twice – from my honeymoon photos in India. An example’s below, along with a decent picture of my dad. Am I really the son of a hidden maharajah?
