Here's a weird thing. A site called MyHeritage wants to use Face Recognition Technology to connect folks with their relatives. As a demo, if you sign up on their site you can get a Celebrity Match as well. It's a fun technology demo, but I wonder how true a representation of their technology it is. I hope this isn't what we're using to stop terrorism.
Here's some results...some more disturbing than others. I wonder how Riya's face recognition would do. Note the "confidence" levels in the pictures below. Maybe this means I'll finally meet Tim Berners-Lee.
