One of my excuses for not doing much blogging of late is that I got sucked into Google Picasa’s facial recognition capabilities and turned it loose on our entire digital photo collection. It’s pretty impressive, in that it identifies faces and matches them correctly something like 80% of the time. The problem is that that last 20% is still a lot of photos. But, as of this morning, I got the whole collection up to date.
Our collection now has 147 different people identified. as you would expect, the people with the most photos that include them are Benton, Carson, and Alana, with each of them coming in at over 2,000 photos. For chuckles, I scanned through the Carson pictures and made a quick movie. It’s 3:14 long. Enjoy!
