Facial Recognition Software?

I’ve experimented with a web-based facial recognition application, and a couple of the results are described below. The application compares your uploaded photo to a celebrity photo database and produces several possible matches. Maybe this will end up becoming a meme.

After several attempts, it seems that I have facial characteristics similar to … Robin Williams?

Ummmm … I don’t think so.

And, as I scroll down the list, it produces an even more amazing comparison … it seems I also look much like Lindsay Lohan!

Yea … I have my doubts. The only thing I seem to have in common with Ms. Lohan is that we are both staring to the right in these photos.

Well it’s a neat technology, but obviously, still pretty buggy (at least in this particular case). Or maybe there’s just no one like me. “I’m good enough, smart enough … and gosh darnit, people like me.”

Have a try, and let me know what your results are.

  1. What are you talking about, guy? You look a lot like Robin Williams. And I can see the resemblance to Lohan, too — you have the same cheeks, and similar nose, chin, and forehead structure. I would definitely believe that you were related (an uncle, say.)
