Recognizr brings amazing facial recognition to Android devices
Sarcastic stalker-related comments aside (I'm sure Recognizr will have plenty of privacy controls), how many times have you recognized someone at a conference or other large gathering and had trouble putting a face to a name? If Recognizr is all it's cracked up to be, you could solve that problem with a little subtle deployment of your phone.
The app works by matching the most distinctive features of the face: the eyes, nose and chin. This gives great results, but it still only works if the person you're looking at is also signed up for Recognizr. That's both a drawback (for those among us with weak memory for faces) and a huge relief (for those with weak stomachs for privacy violations). Recognizr is still a prototype, so it will be a month or two before this technology is ready the leap from sci-fi movie to commonplace reality.
For now, check it out in the video after the jump.
