OMG iPhoto Faces is exceedingly freaky @ 11:07 am

Tags:

iPhoto has face recognition software. You put a name to a face on a photo, and then it hunts through your library for matching faces. I named myself and let it go, and it works freakishly well. It identified me as Indiana Jones. It identified me with the Doctor Orpheus beard. Mouth open, mouth closed, blurry... it made no difference to Skynet.

But it's not perfect... It also guessed that I was ian_tiberius (twice), popepat, vadenalim, and, ahem, casketgirl, as well as PalaeoMorgan dressed as the Monarch.

Must be the eyebrows.

Maybe even more impressive performance on dark_of_night. Blonde, Redhead, Black, goth, witch, or glamorous - makes no difference to the all-seeing iPhoto. Only one stray picture of Rzelle in the bunch.

iPhoto seems to have been freaked out by the VB LARP. It picked you as Dr. Girlfriend, who (some have whispered) has a certain mannish quality.
